Rare, Proof-Only 1876 Three Dollar, PR60

1876 $3 PR60 PCGS. The 1876 is a well-known rarity in the three dollar series, a proof-only issue with only 45 pieces originally struck from a single set of dies. However, several pieces were presumably struck several months after the first delivery as those coins show hints of die rust in the feathers of Liberty's headdress. This is one such coin. Probably 25-30 examples survive as recognizable proofs today, and while the 1875 (which this issue is always compared to) is definitely rarer than the 1876, it is not as rare as the difference in price would indicate.
This piece shows numerous small contact marks on each side, which serve to interrupt the depth of mirrored reflectivity in the fields. The most obvious and mentionable marks are a pair on the cheek of Liberty, and another to the left of the bottom of the 3 on the reverse. A rare opportunity for the advanced collector of 19th century U.S. gold.
From The Cincinnati Collection.(#8040) (Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 28AJ, PCGS# 8040)
