    1882 Three Dollar Gold, MS65
    Remarkable Color and Semiprooflike Fields

    1882 $3 MS65 NGC. In the waning years of the three dollar series, most dates had a relatively tiny mintage that was struck for sale to collectors or people looking to give a gold coin as a Christmas present. Only 1,500 pieces were made in 1882, and Bowers and Winter (2005) speculate that some of that number were likely unsold and melted. The number of high-grade survivors is minuscule, as the population data attest.

    Impeccably preserved reddish-gold surfaces exhibit impressive prooflike reflectivity and frost over the devices. This sharply struck specimen has only a few insignificant marks. The 2 in the date is prominently repunched, as always seen for this issue. Census: 6 in 65 (2 in 65 ), 1 finer (9/13).
    Ex: Los Angeles Signature (Heritage, 8/2009), lot 1242.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 25N5, PCGS# 8004)

    Weight: 5.02 grams
