*NEW* Strike is always an issue with this Three Cent Silver type, with the shield in the center of the star often weak. Here is a wonderful exception, showing a full, strong strike on both sides, brilliant, mark free surfaces, and full glowing luster. Top of the grade in every respect.
Full, sharp strike front and back, an attribute that is difficult to find with this type. I reject 80% of this type on strike alone. Super clean surfaces and finished with full luster on even silvery blue patina overall. Better than most graded MS65.
*NEW* "Highland Collection" Pedigree. A beautiful original. Very sharp strike front and back, with all star and shield lines complete and sharp. Light silvery rose and blue with splashes of light color throughout. Superb, clean surfaces and fully lustrous. A superior type in every respect.
*NEW* A gorgeous example of this key date Matte. The biggest problem with Matte Proof Buffalo’s is their tendency to develop tiny carbon spots, an issue that plagues these coins in all grades, including PR66 and higher. This coin is a happy exception…free of spotting, strong strike, perfect surfaces and finished with gorgeous blue and rose highlights on bright, flashy surfaces. Conservatively graded and extraordinarily Eye-appealing.
