This coin was launched in 1865. At that time, silver coins were still being hoarded by the public. At its introduction, the three-cent piece became the highest-denomination coin in circulation. In 1876, when the silver coins were circulating once again, the three-cent denomination became redundant. Important points to check are the hair and other portrait details on the obverse and the vertical lines in the Roman numeral III, which can be weak.
