Description

1873 Three Dollar Gold Piece, AU53
Key Date, Closed 3 Variety

1873 $3 Closed 3 AU53 PCGS. The 1873 three dollar gold piece is a key date in the series, with two varieties known for the date. The present coin is an example of the Closed 3 variety, with the knobs of the 3 spaced close together. Experts estimate a surviving population of only 80-120 pieces of the Closed 3 variety in all grades.
The present coin displays bright semiprooflike fields with vibrant yellow-gold color and just a hint of red. A touch of softness is evident on the high points of the design and some unusual light scratches in the right obverse field account for the grade. Population: 5 in 53, 47 finer (12/09).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 25MW, PCGS# 7995)
