    Scarce and Popular Branch Mint Issue

    1860-S $3 MS61 NGC. Branch Mint three dollar gold coinage included the 1854 issues of Dahlonega and New Orleans, and San Francisco issues of 1855, 1856, 1857, 1860, and 1870, and the last date is currently unique. It is part of the Harry W. Bass, Jr. Collection that is on display at the ANA headquarters in Colorado Springs.
