    Marvelous Choice BU 1879 Three Dollar Gold

    1879 $3 MS64 NGC Prooflike. The 1879 was produced to the extent of only 3,000 business strikes. Few of these coins reached circulation, however, and Mint State representatives of this issue are more easily obtainable than their worn counterparts. Nevertheless, the 1879 is an immensely popular coin, and this coin's glowing appearance should further enhance its desirability. The fields are partially prooflike with a satiny finish intermixed, the devices are well frosted. Both sides are essentially yellow-gold in color. A few grade-limiting abrasions are seen in the fields. In sum, this relatively smooth example is a marvel to behold.(#8001)(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 25N2, PCGS# 8001)

    Weight: 5.02 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
