    1886 Three Dollar, Conditionally Rare MS63

    1886 $3 MS63 PCGS. CAC. The 1886 had a meager production of 1,000 circulation strikes. A number of these were saved by contemporary collectors as evidenced by the approximately 330 submissions seen by PCGS and NGC, a number of which fall into the MS60 to MS62 range. Higher-grade coins are rare and nearly unobtainable finer than near-Gem.

    Prooflike fields highlight the motifs of this Select specimen that displays modest contrast, especially when the coin is rotated under a light source. The design features exhibit strong definition throughout. A few minor handling marks preclude a higher grade. Population: 10 in 63, 7 finer (12/14).(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 25N9, PCGS# 8008)

    Weight: 5.02 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
