Description

Peach-Gold Gem 1854 Three Dollar
Fine-Grained, Satiny Luster

1854 $3 MS65 PCGS. The 1854 has the highest mintage in the three dollar gold series, at 138,618 circulation strikes. Many were likely saved as the first of issue, as the date is readily available through the lower levels of Mint State. MS65 coins are challenging, and finer pieces are rare.
The present Gem displays the fine-grained, satiny luster typically seen on this issue. Peach-gold surfaces show splashes of delicate mint-green, somewhat more so on the obverse. The strike is decisive, further enhancing the coin's pleasing eye appeal. Well-preserved surfaces reveal no marks of consequence. A few minute, as-made planchet flakes occur in the lower right obverse field. Population: 19 in 65, 10 finer (7/11).
Ex: ANA Signature (Heritage, 8/2007), lot 1870, which brought $21,850.
From The Oliver Collection.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 25M3, PCGS# 7969)
