Bright 1866 Gem Three Dollar1866 $3 MS65 NGC. Collectors apparently saved a fair number of the 4,000-piece business strike mintage of this post Civil War issue. While still scarce, Extremely Fine, About Uncirculated, and lower level Mint State specimens can be obtained with a bit of searching. Gems are extremely rare and finer examples are virtually nonexistent.
The brightly lustrous surfaces of this MS65 offering exhibit uniform brassy-gold coloration, and a decisive strike imparts excellent definition to the design elements. A handful of grade-consistent marks are undisturbing. Census: 2 in 65, 0 finer (11/09).
From The Atherton Family Collection.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 25MM, PCGS# 7987)
