Glowing 1888 Three Dollar, MS661888 $3 MS66 PCGS. CAC. Despite a mintage of 5,000 circulation strikes, the 1888 three dollar gold piece is relatively easy to locate in Mint State right through the near-Gem level of preservation. David Bowers (2005) suggests that this is "probably reflective of fewer being melted at the Mint." Gems, on the other hand, are scarcer, and anything finer is elusive.
Glowing luster emanates from both sides of this Premium Gem, and each is endowed with rich apricot-gold and mint-green patination. A decisive strike results in sharp definition on the design elements. Coupled with these attributes are impeccably preserved surfaces that reveal just a few trivial marks. The CAC label aptly recognizes the technical quality and aesthetic appeal of this lovely piece. Population: 30 in 66, 2 finer (5/09).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 25NB, PCGS# 8010)
Weight: 5.02 grams
