    1877 Three Dollar, AU58 Prooflike
    Few Pieces Struck for Circulation

    1877 $3 AU58 Prooflike NGC. CAC. Only 1,468 circulation strikes were produced of the 1877 three dollar. Of that already minuscule number, an estimated 100 pieces exist today. As one would expect from a coin with such a low mintage, there are many first strikes that retain the initial die polish from new dies. This is one such coin, but it is definitely not a circulated proof -- a rarity in its own right but a coin that appeals to a different area of collecting. This piece displays the expected "fuzziness" from light handling in circulation; however, this has not dulled the bright finish of the prooflike fields. Each side has an accent of reddish patina surrounding the devices. Census: 2 in 58 Prooflike, 5 finer (6/15).
