    1880 Prooflike Three Dollar, MS64
    Deeply Reflective Fields

    1880 $3 MS64 Prooflike NGC. The 1880 three dollar is a rarity whether it is a business strike (mintage of 1,000 pieces) or as a proof (36 pieces). Of course, the low mintage of circulation strikes means all are essentially first-strikes, and in the past there has been confusion between prooflike business strikes and actual proofs. This must have been one of the first coins produced. The fields are deeply reflective and there is significant mint frost over the devices. A few tiny marks are distributed over each side, but the only one of any significance is a planchet flake out of the right obverse field. Only three other pieces have been so certified by NGC and none are finer (11/11).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 25N3, PCGS# 8002)

    Weight: 5.02 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
