    Series-Key 1873 Closed 3 1873 Three Dollar, AU55

    1873 $3 Closed 3 AU55 PCGS. The Closed 3 1873 is most likely the "original" issue from this year. As Breen points out, it would be illogical for it to be the restrike issue if other denominations were first struck with a Closed 3 and then changed to an Open 3. He also estimated that 200 to 300 pieces were struck, but today probably fewer than 100 are believed known. AU examples are generally the finest one is likely to locate as only 16 Uncirculated coins have been graded by both PCGS and NGC (12/07). This piece show the "fuzzy" appearance in the fields of a lightly circulated coin. However, significant portions of the original prooflike finish still exists and shines brightly over each side. Even reddish-gold color, there are no mentionable abrasions.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 25MW, PCGS# 7995)
