    Frosty Gem 1878 Three Dollar, MS65 PCGS

    1878 $3 MS65 PCGS. An unquestionably attractive coin, thick frosty luster ripples across both sides. Liberty's hair and headdress are free of noticeable striking incompleteness, and the reverse is equally well struck. After the first-year 1854 (138,618 pieces produced), the 1878 boasts the largest mintage (82,324 coins) in this series. As such, Gem quality representatives are considered "common" by Three Dollar gold standards. Nevertheless, such coins are rare in an absolute sense and fewer in number than high quality type collectors in today's hobby. Population: 130 in 65, 66 finer (3/04).
    From The Greenwich Collection, Part One. (#8000) (Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 25MZ, PCGS# 8000)

    Weight: 5.02 grams
