Description

Conditionally Scarce 1878 Three Dollar
MS66
, Above-Average Strike

1878 $3 MS66 NGC. The 1878 three dollar gold piece, coming from a generous mintage exceeding 80,000 pieces, is the most common date of the series. NGC and PCGS have certified nearly 11,000 coins, about 6,000 of which are in Mint State! Gems are a little more difficult to locate, and Premium Gems are quite scarce. Finer specimens are very elusive.

The yellow-gold surfaces of this Premium Gem display frosty mint luster. The design elements are much better struck than usually seen on this issue, including the hair and plumes, and the lower wreath, areas that are frequently ill-defined. Only the bow-knot is a tad soft. A few light grazes are insignificant. Census: 35 in 66 (1 in 66+), 8 finer (3/13).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 25MZ, PCGS# 8000)
