Description

Gem Proof 1882 Three Dollar

1882 $3 PR65 PCGS. Garrett and Guth highlight a couple of intriguing die notes for the proof 1882 three dollar gold in their Encyclopedia of U.S. Gold Coins: "The obverse die was the leftover 1881 obverse. The reverse die can be used to differentiate Proofs from circulation strikes--Proofs have a normal 2, whereas circulation strikes have a defective 2 that may have been caused by repunching." There can be no mistaking this Gem for a business strike; the fields have wonderful watery reflectivity. Considerable contrast with a blush of lilac at the upper left obverse of a deep sun-yellow coin. The green label PCGS holder predates Cameo listings. Population: 3 in 65, 0 finer (6/10).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 28AR, PCGS# 8046)
