    1874 Three Dollar, MS65+
    Only One Finer at NGC

    1874 $3 MS65+ NGC. CAC. This MS65+ three dollar gold piece certified by NGC may give some fortunate bidder a leg up in the Registry Set standings, and it is an exceedingly attractive coin in its own right as well, close to MS66 quality so seldom seen in this series. The 1874 is popular as well for type coin purposes, one of the Big Three issues that are the most widely available in the series. The surfaces show the finish peculiar to the three dollar series, a mixture of prooflikeness and cartwheel luster. A few small field marks appear under a loupe, but the radiant mint luster is this coin's trump card. The strike is sharp although a hair short of full. Census: 1 in 65+, 1 finer (7/11).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 7KDE, PCGS# 7998)

    Weight: 5.02 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
