Description:
Stunning 1878 Three Dollar Gold, NGC MS67
1878 $3 MS67 NGC. A tremendous example for the date and type, one of the finest Three Dollar Gold Pieces that this cataloger has ever seen. The surfaces are virtually pristine, with only a couple of tiny, trivial abrasions noticed under even the closest scrutiny, and the luster is frosty and as bright as can be. The natural contours of the dies produced a magnificent halo effect with the luster shining at slightly different angles around the head of Miss Liberty, giving this piece wonderful visual appeal. Sharply struck, with only a couple of insignificant areas of isolated weakness noticed after much searching under magnification. Unobtainable any finer, a beautiful example that combines the best of technical merit and aesthetic appeal and a coin that is destined for the finest of type sets or specialized collections. Population: 12 in 67, 0 finer (4/04). (#8000) (Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 25MZ, PCGS# 8000)
