Description:
Semi-Prooflike Gem 1879 Three-Dollar Gold
1879 MS 65 PCGS. While only of median rarity in the context of the three dollar series, the 1879 is far more elusive than the 1878, the issue it is chronologically closest to and overshadowed by. A drastic drop in business strike production of three dollar gold pieces occurred from 1878 to 1879, with the mintage falling from over 82,000 pieces to just 3,000 coins. The striking details on this piece are unrivaled in their sharpness and second only to the definition seen on proofs. The only disturbances on this high quality, semi-prooflike specimen are a few pinpoint luster breaks that are widely scattered in fields over both sides. Population: 19 in 65, 3 finer (4/98). (NGC ID# 25N2, PCGS# 8001)
