    Popular Gem 1884 Three Dollar

    1884 $3 MS65 NGC. Like the 1880 (both dates have identical business strike mintages), the 1884 is typically encountered at the Uncirculated level of preservation. Once again, this suggests widespread hoarding, with it highly likely that the 1884 did not see widespread circulation as an issue. A quick glance at NGC and PCGS population data, as well as a perusal of our catalogs, however, will quickly reveal that the '84 is a challenging coin to locate in grades above the near-Gem threshold.
    Both sides of this modestly reflective coin reveal flickers of brightness in the fields as the coin rotates under the light. There are no areas of bothersome striking incompleteness, and the eye appeal is enhanced by dominant reddish-gold color and traces of pale powder-blue tinting in select areas on the obverse. The field before Liberty's profile shows a few faint flaws, but nothing to threaten the grade. Census: 4 in 65, 3 finer (1/09).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 25N7, PCGS# 8006)

    Weight: 5.02 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
