It's a Three Cent silver or trime. They were minted from 1851 to 1872 in mint state and from 1854 to 1873 in proof. Type 1 (your coin) was minted from 1851-53 and all but the 51-O were minted in Philadelphia.

Why would someone blur the date? It was only produced for one year, anyway.

Maybe the pic was from a numismatic quiz: "Guess the date!"

thats what I was thinking also, it would have had to be from some type of contest and they were searching for the answer here to type there or something. It would be a good one to do a contest with since it was a one year only coin from this mint. I don't really like the idea of this happening like this because I am sure it isn't the spirit of the contest the person holding it was wanting but it is what it is if that is what it is I guess
