    1859 Three Dollar Gold, MS64
    Scarcer Early Date

    1859 $3 MS64 PCGS. Here is an impressively sharp 1859 three dollar gold piece with satiny orange-gold luster that is free of major abrasions. A hint of reflectivity in the fields emerges when tilted beneath a light. This piece shows the 9 in the date boldly recut on the right side and the 1 faintly recut on its flag. This issue is elusive in MS64 and rare finer. Population: 18 in 64 (3 in 64+), 9 finer (5/21).
