As cannons of the ironclads Monitor and Merrimack exchanged fire, and the Blue and Grey met at Shiloh and Antietam, the Philadelphia Mint struck 343,000 silver three-cent pieces. This 1862 date is the last regular-issue that has a mintage over 300,000 - later dates have miniscule mintages and are difficult to obtain. If this date is missing from your collection, don`t wait.
