    1885 Three Dollar Gold, MS65
    Low-Mintage Condition Rarity

    1885 $3 MS65 PCGS. There are many low-mintage issues in the three dollar gold series, but the 1885 stands out as one of just three dates with a mintage below 1,000 coins (not counting, of course, the unobtainable 1870-S). Only 801 pieces were struck, and high-end examples are among the most sought-after in the series. This Gem representative is an eye-appealing piece and among the finer-known examples of this date. The devices are sharply struck and frosted, providing subtle contrast with nearly prooflike fields. Only a few light, scattered marks are present, and both sides show rich orange-gold coloration. Population: 13 in 65, 7 finer (12/14).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 7KDP, PCGS# 8007)

    Weight: 5.02 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
