    Scarce AU 1857-S Three Dollar

    1857-S $3 AU50 PCGS. 1856 was the high water mark for San Francisco mintage of threes. The 1857-S contributed only 14,000 additional pieces, followed by an even lower production for the 1860-S and finally, the unique 1870-S. Despite the scant 1857-S emission, there was no local numismatic interest until decades later. PCGS has certified a single example as Mint State. The present lightly circulated three has smooth peach-gold surfaces and moderate wear on the curls and wreath. Population: 23 in 50, 28 finer (9/12).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 25MB, PCGS# 7977)
