    Captivating 1874 Three Dollar, MS 66

    1874 $3 MS 66 PCGS. Formerly offered as lot 6912 in our February 2001 Long Beach Sale, where it was described as, "The 1874 is among the more common issues in the three dollar gold series, but Gem quality examples are scarcer than their 1878 counterparts. This makes sense, since the 1874 was produced to the extent of 41,280 pieces, and the 1878 has a higher mintage of 82,324 pieces. The coin that we offer here is significant as one of the finest certified 1874 three dollar gold pieces. Beautifully frosted with flashy, orange-gold color, the surfaces are free of even the most trivial distraction. There are a few isolated areas of striking softness over Liberty's headdress and the lower reverse wreath, but the balance of the features are sharply impressed. Discerning type collectors would be wise to take full advantage of the opportunity that this coin represents." Population: 5 in 66, 0 finer (4/01). (NGC ID# 7KDE, PCGS# 7998)

    Weight: 5.02 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
