Radiant Gem 1879 Three Dollar Gold1879 $3 MS65 PCGS. Although the skimpy mintage was only 3,000 pieces, quite a few Gems are known of this generally well-produced issue. Most surviving Uncirculated examples, however, average MS63 to MS64, and Gems are nonetheless quite elusive. The present example offers radiant cartwheel luster with semi-prooflike surfaces, brilliant orange-yellow color, and enormous eye appeal. PCGS has graded 32 pieces in Gem condition, with only three examples finer (11/06). This coin would be an excellent acquisition for a high grade type set. Three dollar gold pieces also have enduring popularity among today's collectors.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 25N2, PCGS# 8001)
