Select Mint State 1883 Three Dollar
900 Business Strikes Coined

1883 $3 MS63 NGC. The 1883 three dollar gold piece is among the lowest-mintage issues in a series famous for tiny production figures; in the case of the 1883, only 900 business strikes were produced. It appears that astute dealers and numismatists nonetheless set aside a percentage of those late-series issues, else they might be uncollectibly rare today. This Select Mint State specimen shows a single straight planchet depression on the cheek that determines the grade, as elsewhere it is appealing and free of mentionable abrasions. Golden-orange centers yield to deeper hues at the device margins, and the strike is bold overall, despite minor weakness on some of the hair curls on the obverse. Census: 11 in 63, 25 finer (12/11).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 25N6, PCGS# 8005)

HA is a traditional auction house, they set up their auctions slightly different from typical domain auctions. This works well, it seems to be a good mix of old age (live bidding in a prestigious hotel) and new age (online bidding).
