    Superb MS 67 1863 Three Dollar Gold--An Outstanding and Unimprovable Quality Coin

    1863 MS 67 NGC. A briefly minted three and one that is usually seen with at least ten points of wear, from a mintage of 5,000 business strikes. This is an absolutely breathtaking coin that is characterized by booming mint luster--a trait that overpowers all other considerations when viewing this piece. When one does get past the luster, it becomes apparent that the surfaces are clean and problem-free in a sense that goes considerably beyond other high grade threes. There are no abrasions under magnification that are large enough to be used as pedigree identifiers. However, each side does show rather pronounced die clashing. A bit softly struck on the plumes of the headdress and the bow knot of the wreath. This latter area also shows granularity in the planchet which is matched by a similar, small area of roughness at the top of the reverse. The fields have very light traces of die striations which impart a subtle sheen to the reverse. Superb overall condition and irresistable eye appeal. From the Green Mountain Collection. (NGC ID# 7K5R, PCGS# 7984)
