    Choice Proof 1872 Three Dollar Gold
    Attractive Cameo Specimen

    1872 $3 PR64 Cameo NGC. CAC. Only 30 proof three dollar gold pieces were minted in 1872, and the business-strike mintage was also small, with 2,000 examples struck. As might be expected, the date is rare in either format today, although the proofs are more available than some dates from the era. The present coin is an attractive Choice specimen, with distinct cameo contrast between the deeply mirrored fields and the frosty devices. The fields are a pleasing greenish-gold color, with hints of rose on the design elements. A few minor contact marks do little to detract from the outstanding eye appeal. Census: 6 in 64, 2 finer (7/11).(Registry values: N7079) (PCGS# 88035)
