    1885 Three Dollar, MS64
    Business Strike From the Proof Die

    1885 $3 MS64 PCGS. The same die was used, showing recutting atop AM, to strike the circulation and proof strikes of this issue -- 801 of the former, 109 of the latter -- but this piece lacks the orange-peel surfaces that a high-grade proof should show, and the early proofs also show a strong leaf left of the date, while it is weak here. There is some light field chatter over surfaces that are prooflike, every bit as expected and completely in concert with the numeric grade. Deep orange-gold color and a bold strike add to the broad appeal. PCGS has seen 27 submissions at this grade level with 17 finer, but both totals are suspected of numerous duplications (6/12).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 25N8, PCGS# 8007)
