||1852 3CS MS66 NGC. The lack of lines surrounding the six-pointed star is the distinguishing factor for the Variety One examples in the silver three cent series. This trime's lustrous surfaces display a melange of pastel yellow-green, orange, peach, and lime-green toning, with the colors more subdued on the reverse. The coin exhibits a sharp strike overall, with some of the stars displaying a lack of central line detail. The reverse reveals a slight clockwise rotation. Only 14 examples have achieved higher grades from NGC (10/13). Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
