    1874 Three Dollar Gold, MS66
    Remarkable Surfaces, Conditionally Rare

    1874 $3 MS66 PCGS. The 1874 gold three dollar piece is a widely recognized type coin, but what is often overlooked is this issue's conditional rarity at the Gem and finer grade levels. In stark contrast to lower grades, PCGS and NGC have recorded just eight MS66 pieces combined, and none are finer at either service (7/16). Compared to the several hundred Gem or better 1878 coins certified, high-end 1874 three dollar gold pieces are conditionally underappreciated. This shimmering, frosted example displays rich reddish-gold luster and remarkably unabraded surfaces. The wreath bowknot is soft, as usual, but the remaining design elements are well-defined. Population: 6 in 66, 0 finer (7/16).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 7KDE, PCGS# 7998)

    Weight: 5.02 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
