    Description

    1877 Three Dollar Gold, MS61
    Low-Mintage Rarity

    1877 $3 MS61 PCGS. Ex: South Texas. Sandwiched between the high mintage 1874 and 1878 three dollar gold issues are the proof-only 1875 and 1876 productions, and the low-mintage 1877, from a business-strike production of only 1,468 coins. The Smithsonian Institution has just one example that is graded AU58 Prooflike. This specimen from The Chinook Collection is over two grades finer at MS61. Although the contrast is undesignated, this example has mirrored straw-gold fields with splashes of pale blue and light orange toning. A glass is required to see the trivial hairlines and surface marks on this impressive piece. Population: 8 in 61, 6 finer (3/19).
    Ex: Rosemont Signature (Heritage, 8/2013), lot 5824, realized $22,325.
    From The Chinook Collection. (Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 25MY, PCGS# 7999)

    Weight: 5.02 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
