1873 Three Dollar Gold, MS62
1873 $3 Closed 3 MS62 NGC. No record of business strikes
appears in the Mint reports for the 1873 three dollar gold pieces.
Officially, just 25 proofs were minted for the date. However, over
100 grading events at PCGS and NGC combined prove business strikes
certainly exist. Perhaps as many as 1,000 pieces were actually
struck for circulation in early 1873.
Closed 3, Rare Issue
Official Mintage Unknown
The number of survivors is estimated at 80 to 120 pieces, although most of these are circulated coins. Fewer than 20 Mint State examples are thought to exist. Partially prooflike and boldly struck, this example displays frosted motifs that contrast with lustrous, reflective fields. There are no major marks, although the obverse fields are busy with small abrasions. A rarity of the series, this issue is comparable to the elusive 1877 issue both in low mintage and value. The present MS62 coin is the highest graded example at NGC. Census: 1 in 62, 0 finer (6/14).
