Description

Original Near-Mint 1873 Closed 3 Eagle
Condition Census, Only 800 Made

1873 $10 Closed 3 AU58 NGC. Although this issue is called the 1873 Closed 3 (or Close 3), that is somewhat redundant, as all of the issue is of the Close 3 variety. Garrett and Guth note that "there are few eagles rarer than the 1873, Close 3" and that its mintage of only 800 coins made it the "lowest of any eagle up until that time." (The 1875 through 1877 eagles that followed, however, all had mintages that were even lower.)
This coin displays an original "old gold" appearance, with blue-gray fields and reddish color overall giving it a two-toned, layered appearance. The strike is sharp, producing no notable areas of weakness. Numerous small to medium-sized marks dot the fields, the most obvious in front of Liberty's face. An essentially unimprovable issue, as only one MS60 example at PCGS is certified finer. Census: 4 in 58, 0 finer (4/10).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 2654, PCGS# 8666)
