Description

Boldly Struck, Two-Toned
1889 Three Dollar, MS64

1889 $3 MS64 PCGS. The series-ending three dollar gold pieces of 1889 seem to have been saved both by dealers and collectors aware of the low mintages within the series, and perhaps by noncollectors who simply retained the last issue of this odd denomination. This near-Gem is considerably finer than the average survivor nonetheless, and Gem and finer examples seldom appear. This two-toned coin boasts splendid orange-gold color on the obverse, deepening on the reverse to incredible lilac coloration in the center. (Please note that a blemish-fuzzy area that may appear in the photograph in that area is on the holder.) This piece, besides being inordinately attractive, is close to a full strike. A small oval-shaped strikethrough on Liberty's neck provides a pedigree marker. Population: 50 in 64, 38 finer (3/11).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 25NC, PCGS# 8011)
