    Extremely Rare Proof 1873 Closed 3 Gold Dollar

    1873 G$1 Closed 3 PR64 NGC. The 1873 Closed 3 is one of the rarest Gold Dollars struck in proof format. It is estimated that only 10-12 pieces are known in all grades. The proofs of this issue were struck from the same obverse die as the proofs struck from 1862 through 1872. A different die was used in 1874, but this same die was put back into service in 1875 and some of those dated 1876 used this die also. This lovely piece has even orange-gold color and deeply reflective fields. This coin can be distinguished for pedigree purposes by the presence of several small lint marks on each side and several small planchet flaws on the cheek of Liberty. Population: 0 in 64, 1 finer (4/02). (NGC ID# 25EG, PCGS# 7623)

    Weight: 1.67 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
