    Impressive Choice Mint State 1857 Three Dollar

    1857 $3 MS64 NGC. Paul M. Green's October 10, 2006 article in Numismatic News on the three dollar gold series offers interesting insight into the legislative process that allowed the denomination to come into being. He described 1853 as "... a time when the Western mining interests were advocating any gold denomination they could get, including $25, $50, and $100 coins." Though the three dollar gold piece survived and became law, it never truly thrived, and in 1857, just the fourth year of production, only 20,891 business strikes were coined. This near-Gem survivor is among the best known, with semi-flashy yellow-gold fields and strong detail. An abrasion within the reverse wreath contributes to the grade. Census: 8 in 64, 2 finer (3/09).
