    This series is probably one of the over looked series to collect. Never the less it has a lot to offer to the collector
    who likes something that isn't mainstream.

    I really like the design of this coin but unfortunately only have one that resides in our 7070 album.

    I did not. I just looked it up on PCGS and mine looks to be the "Open 3".
    I'm also severely sleep deprived so I could be hallucinating lol.

    I've only got one.
    Bought it for my type set.
    I wanted the best ribbing on the III that I could find at the time.

    It looks like 1873B03. There are no clash marks or signs of a RPD on mine that I can see. She's worn but I like her :)

    I have a small group of these but few images. Had to have this one because of the clash.

    I just won this one for taking second place in the "Miscellaneous Items” category at the recent FUN show exhibits. It's in an MS-64 holder.

    LOTS of nice nickel 3-cent coins posted.
    I particularly like the die clashes on RogerC's coin.

    Yeah but Larry's 1879 ........wow nice colors! My 76 was that color toned,but has changed perhaps the cardboard in the slab box.
    Later if Time allows im going to attribute the 79 38,000 pcs and a great grade.
    PO 1 survival rate 45 meaning < 45 estermated to exist. 10 are known to exist. RPD 001 in 63 $870 ,64 $ 945 , 65 , $1425 ,66 $2100 +/- pricing is most probably ood.....but this is a PQ coin...at least a 65 and I see a 66.
    Sweet coin

    I don’t collect the three cent Nickels, silver or copper. This is one of two that I have and it resides in my Dansco 7070. F4E64BDC-4FF9-4AA4-A199-D081A69C63E4.jpeg 08AA501A-0F7F-4DAC-AFA5-05436672D512.jpeg
