1854-D Three Dollar Gold Piece, AU55
1854-D $3 AU55 PCGS. CAC. Variety 1-A. The Dahlonega and New
Orleans Mint each produced three dollar gold pieces in the debut
year,1854, and produced no others of this denomination.
Considerable demand stems from specialists in the three dollar
series, as well as collectors of Dahlonega gold coins. The few
survivors from the 1,120-coin mintage are hardly sufficient to meet
that demand, especially in higher grades. PCGS has only certified
13 submissions in higher grades than this Choice AU example, and
that population total likely includes resubmissions. Market
appearances are infrequent. Over the past 25 years, we have offered
finer examples just 29 times. This piece has pleasing honey-gold
surfaces and retains considerable luster with minimal,
inconsequential circulation marks. Population: 22 in 55, 13 finer.
CAC: 6 in 55, 5 finer (2/18). (NGC ID# 25M4, PCGS# 7970)
Finer than Usually Seen
Weight: 5.02 grams
Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
