    1880 Three Dollar, MS64
    Always-Popular Date, Only 1,000 Minted

    1880 $3 MS64 PCGS. CAC. The 1880 is one of the scarcest and most highly sought after dates in the three dollar series. Only 1,000 pieces were struck for circulation, but a substantial number are known today as contemporary collectors and the general public recognized the absolute rarity of a coin with a mintage this low. This piece does not have the often-seen deeply mirrored fields that resemble a proof. Instead it looks like many other well-preserved threes with a combination of bright, semiprooflikeness in the fields and cartwheel luster. Each side has beautiful mint luster with a significant presence of reddish patina and occasional streaks of lilac. The only mark of note is in the obverse field below the O in OF. Population: 68 in 64 (2 in 64+), 19 finer (6/12).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 25N3, PCGS# 8002)
