Description

Elusive 1881 Three Dollar Gold, MS63
Tied for Finest We Have Offered

1881 $3 MS63 PCGS. The impossibly low mintage of 500 pieces ensures that virtually all Mint State pieces will exhibit prooflike surfaces, as here on this Select representative. The coloration is rich reddish-gold, complementing a sharp strike. The numerous small abrasions peppered over each side constitute the grade. Bowers estimates in his reference on the odd denomination that from 20 to 30 Mint State examples survive today. This MS63 piece is tied for the finest certified that we have offered since we began our Permanent Auction Archives in 1993. The last such, lot 4022 in our 2009 FUN Signature, brought $19,550. Population: 9 in 63, 5 finer (3/11).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 25N4, PCGS# 8003)
