    Rare, Low Mintage 1864 Three Dollar
    A Seldom-Seen Bright MS63 Example

    1864 $3 MS63 PCGS. In a series known for low mintages, the 1864 had an impressively low production run of only 2,630 pieces. But what is even more instructive about the rarity of this date is the estimate of only 200 or so coins that are believed to exist in all grades, most of which are XF or lower. Few Uncirculated examples are known. In fact, in MS63 PCGS has only graded one other coin with a mere 10 pieces finer (12/07). This is a lovely coin that displays the curious combination of semi-prooflikeness and mint frost in the fields that is seen on many, if not most dates in the three dollar series. Rich reddish tinted yellow-gold surfaces show a few scattered abrasions that account for the grade, but none are worthy of individual mention. An uncommon opportunity for the collector of 19th century gold.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 25MK, PCGS# 7985)
