    1884 Three Dollar, MS61 Prooflike
    1,000 Coins Minted, Pleasing Cameo Effect

    1884 $3 MS61 Prooflike NGC. This 1884 three dollar could easily be mistaken for a proof, but only on closer examination do the tell-tale signs of a circulation strike become obvious. The strike is excellent, but falls short of full. The fields are mirrored, but fail to show the depth of true proofs. The tiny field spaces inside the ribbon bows show satin luster, but are not mirrored. This lovely piece has contrasted yellow surfaces and few minor marks that prevent a higher grade. Census: 2 in 61 Prooflike, 3 finer (7/19).
    Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 9/2008), lot 3553; Houston Money Show (Heritage, 12/2014), lot 3762. (NGC ID# 25N7, PCGS# 78006)

    Weight: 5.02 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
