Description

Premium Gem 1888 Three Dollar
Tied for Finest NGC-Certified

1888 $3 MS66 NGC. An exquisite canary-gold Premium Gem that boasts potent luster and a full strike. A loupe is required to view the few trivial field abrasions that limit the grade. An important example of a popular penultimate date that is unimprovable in an NGC holder. As is the case with all survivors from the meager business strike production of 5,000 pieces, the obverse is strongly die doubled, visible on UNITED. On the reverse, the date is deeply entered and slopes strongly north. Proofs of this date do not exhibit obverse die doubling and have a level date. Census: 16 in 66, 0 finer (11/11).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 25NB, PCGS# 8010)
