Description

1865 Three Dollar, MS62+
High-End Eye Appeal

1865 $3 MS62+ NGC. CAC. After the initial flurry of coinage in 1854, it soon became clear that the three dollar gold denomination would fail to perform on the American stage -- and that was never more true than during the Civil War, when first gold, then silver, then copper coins largely ceased to circulate due to hoarding. The mintages of three dollar gold plunged every year from 1861 to 1865, when a stingy 1,140 business strikes were coined. This apricot-gold example shows a few scattered marks, but the surfaces are high-end for the grade and, in fact, for the type as a whole, with an excellent strike and bold eye appeal. Census: 4 in 62 (1 in 62+), 7 finer (2/13).
From The William Jacob Collection, Part II.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 7K5S, PCGS# 7986)
