    1865 Three Dollar, XF45
    Choice Surfaces and Color

    1865 $3 XF45 PCGS. A brief mintage of just 1,140 pieces plus 25 proofs was little more than an afterthought at the Mint during 1865. The dies were barely used when coinage of three dollar gold pieces ceased for the year. Gleaming areas of prooflike surface remain near protective raised devices of this lightly circulated example, while the high points of the design and minor abrasions are softened by wear. With very few Mint State examples that exist -- and many so-called AU coins that show signs of handling or overly bright surfaces -- this original XF coin with wonderful orange-gold color and Choice surfaces offers an excellent opportunity for the three dollar gold specialist. Population: 7 in 45, 55 finer (10/15).(Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 7K5S, PCGS# 7986)

    Weight: 5.02 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
