    1873-S Closed 3 Twenty, MS63+
    A Condition Rarity
    Among the Finest Known

    1873-S $20 Closed 3 MS63+ NGC. Ex: Classic Liberty Collection. The 1873-S Closed 3 is the more challenging of the two S-mints of this year. Lower grade coins have become more available in recent years due to finds in European sources; however, it is a condition rarity at the MS63 level. This is a remarkably clean example for the grade, as indicated by the Plus designation. The fields are bright and semiprooflike, indicating this was an early strike from a new pair of dies. Light reddish-tinted gold color covers each side of this impressive Type Two twenty. Census: 3 in 63 (1 in 63+), 1 finer (7/21).
    Ex: Regency Auction 44 (Legend Auctions, 4/2021), where it brought $19,388.(Registry values: N7079)
