Description:
1879 Three Dollar, PR64 Cameo
Only 30 Proofs Minted, Some Unsold
1879 $3 PR64 Cameo NGC. CAC. The proof mintage of three dollar gold pieces was a mere 30 specimens in 1879, and it is doubtful that all of them found buyers. The issue is very rare in all grades today. This well-struck Choice example displays the dramatic black-on-gold flash of the best Cameo coins when tilted in the light. The brightly reflective fields show only a few minor hairlines and contact marks, and the surfaces are an attractive yellow-gold hue, with green highlights. This rare coin possesses exceptional eye appeal for the grade. Census: 2 in 64, 3 finer (7/11).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 28AM, PCGS# 88043)
