    1871 Three Dollar Gold Piece
    MS65 Prooflike
    The Only Gem We Have Offered

    1871 $3 MS65 Prooflike NGC. Nicely struck and fully prooflike (as designated on the NGC holder) with bright champagne-golden color overall. The fields provide excellent contrast with the frosted devices, and there are no individual abrasions of any significance. From a scant mintage of just 1,330 pieces, this is the only MS65 specimen that appears on the NGC Census Report (7/13), with a single MS67 specimen examined at PCGS. This is the second appearance of the only Gem 1871 three dollar from either service we have sold in a Heritage Signature sale. Census: 1 in 65 Prooflike, 0 finer (7/13).
    From our Pittsburgh Signature Sale (8/2004), lot 7238.
    From The Anchors Aweigh Collection of Prooflike Gold.
