Description

Extremely Rare 1876 Proof Three Dollar

1876 PR 63 NGC. The proof-only status of the 1876 three-dollar has given it much notoriety over the decades and its rarity is assured by a mintage of just 45 coins. One must allow for duplication in arriving at the number of surviving 1876 threes, but even so it seems that no more than 25-30 pieces are extant today. The population of unimpaired examples, however, is much lower, with as many as a dozen specimens having been rigorously cleaned or even used as pocket pieces. This piece has a rich, deep-orange color, and is undoubtedly at the top end of the grade. (NGC ID# 28AJ, PCGS# 8040)
