Description

1878 Three Dollar Gold Piece, MS66

1878 $3 MS66 NGC. Slightly more than a half million three dollar gold pieces were coined for the entire life of the denomination from 1854 to 1889, and about 15% of that total occurred in 1878, when the Philadelphia Mint coined 82,304 three dollar pieces. High grade survivors of that coinage are elusive. This Premium Gem is an exquisite specimen with brilliant and frosty yellow-gold luster, showing traces of pinkish-orange and pale bluish-green overtones on each side. This piece is sharply struck throughout. Census: 35 in 66 (1 in 66+), 8 finer (3/13).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 25MZ, PCGS# 8000)
