1869/'8' 3CS MS67+ PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The 1869-dated Three Cent Silver pieces from these dies are traditionally called overdates. However, some observers have questioned the true nature of the variety, suggesting that it is either a recut 1869/9, or the result of a die line inside the digit. According to PCGS Coin Facts, this is the only Mint State example that is identified as the "overdate" variety, while 11 proof examples carry the same identification. Regardless of its name, the fact is that this is the second finest PCGS certified Mint State 1869 Three Cent piece of any variety. A sharply struck Superb Gem, this piece has brilliant satin luster beneath blue central toning with a ring of gold and iridescent toning, nicely matched on each side.

Never liked the design, but it's hard not to appreciate this example.

Its one of the less inspiring design, but this is a exceptional example indeed.

I actually like the design. It packs a lot into a small canvas, but not too much.
