    Frosty Choice Mint State 1887 Three Dollar Gold Piece

    1887 $3 MS64 PCGS. A touch of haze in the fields and toned with pleasing coppery-gold throughout. The strike is sharp and the surfaces smooth as expected, with moderate handling ticks visible with a loupe. A paltry mintage of 6,000 pieces slid down the coining chute for the year, and most entered circulation. Identifiable by a thin planchet streak down from the R of LIBERTY.
    From The Peter G. Apple Collection.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 25NA, PCGS# 8009)

    Weight: 5.02 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
