    Prooflike Superb Gem 1868 Three Dollar, The Single Finest Certified

    1868 $3 MS67 Prooflike NGC. A spectacular and flawless Superb Gem. Presumably one of the first pieces struck from the dies, the gorgeously preserved fields are flashy and decidedly reflective. The exquisitely struck devices are equally close to pristine. The obverse is immaculate, and lengthy inspection of the reverse is required before a few minute slide marks are perceptible from selected angles. A better date in the series, since only 4,850 business strikes were issued, along with 25 proofs. Several dozen pieces appear to have survived in Mint State; these were probably set aside by East Coast collectors of the day. However, it would take an essentially perfect example to challenge the finest known status of the present coin. This is the only 1868 Three Dollar Gold Piece to be certified above the MS65 grade by NGC. Expect an exceptional price to be required to win this museum quality Princess. (#7989) (Registry values: N1) (NGC ID# 25MP, PCGS# 7989)
