Description:
Final-Year 1889 Three Dollar, MS65+
1889 $3 MS65+ PCGS. CAC. The three dollar gold denomination became a collector's item in the years before it was eliminated. The best summation of the end-of-series 1889 issue (mintage 2,300 pieces) comes from Garrett and Guth, who write in their Encyclopedia of U.S. Gold Coins that "a high percentage of the coins survived, mostly in Mint State, reflective of the increase in the number of collectors in America and the demand for this series. MS-63 and MS-64 examples are fairly plentiful by $3 gold standards, but gems are rare." This MS65+ example has swirling, slightly flashy luster on light yellow-gold surfaces. A few tiny field disturbances combine to preclude an even finer designation. Population: 1 in 65+, 12 finer (6/11).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 25NC, PCGS# 8011)
