    Description

    Low-Mintage 1883 Three Dollar, MS64 ★
    An Impressive, Reflective Coin

    1883 $3 MS64 ★ NGC. At first glance this important business strike actually looks like a proof due to its fully mirrored fields and satiny devices. The light yellow surfaces have hints of the watery or wavy surface that is typical of proof gold coins. The borders on both sides have pale lemon-yellow color.
    The 1883 three dollar gold piece is extremely popular due to its low mintage of just 900 business strikes. Another 89 proofs were also coined. The current NGC Census Report shows that just two 1883 three dollar pieces have been certified in MS64 , the only Star designated examples of the date (11/09), with seven pieces numerically finer (all MS65).

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
