    Elusive 1860 Three Dollar, MS64

    1860 $3 MS64 PCGS. There really aren't any common dates among three dollar gold pieces, although 1854, 1874, and 1878 are seen more often than any other dates in Mint State grade. In 1860, only 7,036 business strikes were coined in Philadelphia and few have survived in high grades.
    Like most of the few Mint State survivors, this piece is sharp and has brilliant mint frost with bright yellow luster. The obverse has diagonal die lines while those on the reverse are vertical. A few faint hairlines and other tiny marks can be seen on each side, with little of significance. This is a highly appealing piece that will delight the type collector or the specialist. Population: 10 in 64, 4 finer (6/07).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 25ME, PCGS# 7980)

    Weight: 5.02 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
