    Impressive Near-Gem 1860 Three Dollar

    1860 $3 MS64 PCGS. Referring to the 1860, Q. David Bowers and Doug Winter (2005) write that "only a few hundred $3 gold coins exist of this date, most of which are in circulated grades ... . Mint state coins seem to be more elusive than certification data or convention wisdom suggest." This rarity is seldom seen in low Uncirculated grades, let alone Choice Mint State. PCGS has certified only 11 pieces at that lofty level, with just four examples finer (6/09).
    Delightful sun-gold patina embraces both sides of this carefully preserved near-Gem. A hint of softness on Liberty's hair and several wispy abrasions prelude a Gem grade. This attractive specimen that would make an excellent addition to a Registry Set.
    From The Victoria Collection.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 25ME, PCGS# 7980)
