    Choice Proof 1880 Three-Dollar Gold Piece

    1880 $3 PR64 PCGS. Just 36 examples of this issue were originally coined in Proof format, and it is believed that about 20 survive today, in all grades. In the past dozen years, this is only the sixth time we have offered an example of this date in Proof format, one every two years. This is a sharply struck Choice Proof with rich honey-gold color. The surfaces have a few minor abrasions and hairlines, keeping this from the Gem class. Light cameo contrast is present, but not enough to be designated as a Cameo Proof. Population: 8 in 64, 3 finer (5/05).(#8044) (Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 28AN, PCGS# 8044)

    Weight: 5.02 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
