    Flashy MS64 1887 Three Dollar

    1887 $3 MS64 PCGS. With 6,000 business strikes produced, the 1887 is actually the highest-mintage three dollar gold issue in the denomination's last decade, a testament to its obsolescence by the time it was taken out of service. High-end examples are a slightly offbeat but popular choice for gold type collectors, and coins such as this near-Gem are ideal for the purpose. The strike is impressive, and the pale yellow-gold fields have a combination of mirrored reflectivity and the design's famous swirling luster. Minor wispy marks in the fields and a few small digs on the reverse account for the grade. PCGS has graded 32 coins as MS65 or better (4/10).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 25NA, PCGS# 8009)

    Weight: 5.02 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper

    Thanks to Heritage I realized a handsome profit for my coin submissions and intend to send most of the remainder of my collection to Heritage Auction Galleries for future auctions.
