    Description

    1870 $3 AU53 NGC. A small mintage of just 3,500 pieces makes the 1870 scarce-to-rare in all grades. This straw-gold example saw brief circulation, but escaped into collector hands with only minor marks and slight wear on the high points. Soft mint luster remains in protected areas. The leaf immediately left of the date is nearly lapped away, confirming the circulation strike status of this coin.(Registry values: N1793)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 25MS, PCGS# 7991)

    Weight: 5.02 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
