    Description

    1879 Three Dollar, Semiprooflike AU58

    1879 $3 AU58 NGC. CAC. After the Mint vastly overestimated demand for three dollar coins when gold and paper currency reached parity, it returned to normal levels of ultra-low production in 1879. Only 3,000 pieces were struck that year. This reflective, nearly Uncirculated example offers lustrous, well-struck surfaces with pleasing rose-gold coloration.
    From The Morgan Hill Collection.(Registry values: N1793)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 25N2, PCGS# 8001)

    Weight: 5.02 grams
