|This 1851-O Three Cent Silver has been graded AU58 by PCGS and is encapsulated in one of the newer-style edge-view holders. The 1851-O three cent silver, sometimes called a “trime,” is a very popular date as it is a first year of issue coin and the only date issued by one of the branch mints; therefore, is the only three cent silver issued that has a mint mark. The coin is mostly untoned and lustrous and just a hint of wear is present on the high points. A few small marks can be found as well, but nothing too distracting. An excellent, nearly mint state example of the popular New Orleans minted three cent silver.
Because of the difficulty in capturing the overall look of the coin in a single image, I have also included a short high-definition video of the coin towards the bottom of this listing in an attempt to give you a better idea of what this coin will look like in hand. Please note that you may need to adjust the video quality to 1080p and may need to increase the size of the video to full screen in order to see the coin in maximum detail.
