Description

1856 MS64 Prooflike Three Dollar
Rarely Found With Contrast

1856 $3 MS64 Prooflike NGC. While not especially scarce as a date, few examples are known with a prooflike finish as seen on this piece. The devices are sharply struck with frosty cameo design elements and deeply reflective fields. Magnification reveals die polishing lines in the fields on both the obverse and reverse that explains the brightness seen in the fields. Two minor planchet lamination flaws can be seen in the obverse field in front of Liberty's mouth and beneath ST in STATES. Worth a generous bid from the quality-conscious collector.
Ex: St. Louis Central States Signature (Heritage, 5/2005), lot 8557.
From The Gnome at the Shore Collection. (NGC ID# 25M8, PCGS# 77974)
