    1885 Gold Three Dollar, Unc Sharpness

    1885 $3 -- Cleaning -- PCGS Genuine. Unc Details. Boasting a small mintage of only 801 pieces, the 1885 three dollar gold issue is highly sought-after in all grades. This is a bright yellow-gold example with prooflike fields and sharp design elements. Light surface chatter appears beneath a loupe, but the overall eye appeal remains pleasing. PCGS declined a numeric grade due to an old cleaning, evidenced by scattered hairlines in the fields.(Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 25N8, PCGS# 8007)

    Weight: 5.02 grams
