    1859 Three Dollar Gold, MS62 Prooflike
    Struck From Proof Dies

The other example is certified MS60 Prooflike. The outer right curve of the 9 is recut, a diagnostic that appears on proofs as well as some business strikes. This piece was struck immediately after the 80 proofs that appear in Mint records. Delicate blue and orange patina appear on the brilliant yellow surfaces with fully mirrored fields that reflect a few scattered marks on each side. Census: 1 in 62 Prooflike, 0 finer (7/13).
