Ron Guth:

The 1881 Three Cent Nickel has an extremely high mintage for an era when mintages of less than 10,000 coins were common.  With over 1 million coins minted, the 1881 has the seventh highest mintage of the series.  As a result, collectors will have no difficulty locating a nice example of this date at a reasonable price.  The typical Mint State grade is MS-64, with a decreasing but fairly equal distribution of grades on either side.  On the high end, the finest examples certified by PCGS (as of December 2011) are seven MS-67s.
