Sparkling Bright 1882 Gem Three Dollar Gold

1882 $3 MS65 NGC. This Gem coin shows blazing luster throughout, with apparent mint frost on Liberty's head. The strike is very sharp on the uppermost curls of Liberty, and even the finer details of the wreath are present. Curiously the date was widely recut on the 2, with an errant 2 placed well above the horizon line of the other digits. As a date, the 1882 is quite scarce, boasting a meager mintage of 1,500 pieces for circulation. The combined NGC and PCGS Population reports tally seven examples graded this high, and importantly they show a scant seven coins in higher grades. One for the date or type collector who demands Gem quality and exceptional eye appeal for their collection.(#8004)(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 25N5, PCGS# 8004)
