    Near-Mint 1873 Three Dollar
    Closed 3 Logotype

    1873 $3 Closed 3 AU58 NGC. This near-Mint representative of the three dollar gold denomination bears its year's earlier Closed 3 logotype with its last digit that could be mistaken for a second 8. (One wonders how many coins like this have sold as examples of the 1878, one of the most popular type issues in the series!) Luster is largely intact and strongly reflective, slightly more so on the obverse, with pale but distinct yellow-gold color. Though the fields show a number of small abrasions and even a few pinscratches, the central devices are surprisingly free of wear. Census: 15 in 58, 5 finer (3/13).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 25MW, PCGS# 7995)

    Weight: 5.02 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
