    1882 Three Dollar Gold, MS65+
    Only Two Finer Coins at NGC

    1882 $3 MS65+ NGC. The 1882 three dollar gold piece claims a small mintage of just 1,500 pieces. A small mintage of 76 proofs was also struck to satisfy collector demand and contemporary collectors saved few high-quality business strikes for numismatic purposes. Accordingly, the 1882 is an elusive issue in high grade today. The regular-issue coins show repunching on the 2 in the date, making it easy to differentiate between proofs and business strikes.

    The present coin is a Plus-graded Gem, with well-detailed design elements that show just a trace of softness on the headdress feathers. The impeccably preserved orange-gold surfaces radiate vibrant mint luster, with traces of prooflike reflectivity in selected areas. Eye appeal is terrific. Census: 7 in 65 (1 in 65+, 2 in 65 ), 2 finer (7/19).(Registry values: N7079)
