Description:
Gem 1885 Three Dollar, A Low Mintage Year in the Series
1885 $3 PR 65 PCGS. A no-questions Gem, the originally patinated, orange-gold surfaces leave little doubt as to this coin's proof status. The devices display pinpoint striking definition and the fields are smooth and glassy in appearance. The surfaces are also smooth and free of singularly mentionable distractions. Since only 800 business strike three dollar gold pieces were struck in 1885, the corresponding proofs are among the more popular of the 1879-1889 issues. Perhaps 40 of the latter are extant today, and they are distinguishable from prooflike business strikes by the obvious recutting on the 3 in the denomination. An important coin for the advanced gold date collector, this coin possesses captivating eye appeal and unimpeachable technical merits. (NGC ID# 28AU, PCGS# 8049)
