Description

Low Mintage 1872 Three Dollar Gold Piece
Underrated Issue, MS61 Prooflike

1872 $3 MS61 Prooflike NGC. From a minuscule mintage of just 2,000 pieces, the 1872 three dollar gold piece is an underrated issue among nonspecialists. Q. David Bowers estimates only 20-30 examples are extant in Mint State grades, and this may be a generous estimate given the low number of submissions seen by the grading services. The present coin is a pleasing example, with bright luster and prooflike, reflective surfaces. A couple of shallow handling marks on Liberty's cheek account for the grade. Census: 4 in 61 Prooflike, 4 finer (2/10). (NGC ID# 3JYZ, PCGS# 77994)
