Description:
AU58 1881 Three Dollar Gold
Lowest Mintage of the Series
1881 $3 AU58 PCGS. CAC. The 1881 three dollar boasts the lowest reported circulation strike mintage of the entire series, at 500 pieces, and as such it joins a select and small club of sub-1,000-coin mintages among U.S. gold issues. The Bowers series reference estimates that only 100-150 survivors exist today, including both circulated and Mint State coins. The present near-Mint State representative generates considerable flash over reddish-tinted surfaces that show just a whisper of high-point wear. Sharply struck design features contrast against the partially mirrored fields, and neither side reveals any significant contact marks.
Ex: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2008), lot 4036, which realized $9,200.
