Error $0.03 1861 Silver 3cs Rotated 180 Degrees - PCGS AU55

Graded AU55 by PCGS (Cert. No. 32637261), this 1861 Silver Three Cent piece was struck with one die rotated 180 degrees out of normal position, producing what is known as "Medallic Alignment", rather than the "Coin Alignment" customarily used on US coinage.

Toned in antique grey over modestly marked surfaces and strong details, this is an attractive example, whether for a US type set, or an error type set.
