    Low Mintage 1865 Three Dollar MS60

    1865 $3 MS60 ANACS. Typically bold with a delicate coppery-gold tint and subdued prooflike tendencies. A few tiny contact marks are noted on Liberty's neck, but otherwise the surfaces are far less abraded that what would normally be expected of an MS60. The 1865 has the lowest official mintage (the elusive 1873 has no official mintage) of any three-dollar gold piece struck prior to 1881 with only 1,140 business strikes produced. Unlike some later date, low mintage issues, the 1865 is genuinely rare in all grades, and doesn't seem to have been hoarded in Mint State. It is unlikely that more than 75-85 pieces remain today in all grades.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 7K5S, PCGS# 7986)

    Weight: 5.02 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
