    1889 Three Dollar, Orange-Gold MS65
    Sharply Struck and Lustrous

    1889 $3 MS65 PCGS. The last-year three dollar gold issue, the 1889 was only struck to the extent of 2,300 coins for circulation, but savvy collectors and dealers put back examples at the time of issue. The certified population today averages just a hair over MS60, however, making Gems such as this delightful PCGS-graded example the exception rather than the rule. Deep, engaging luster dominates each sided of this orange-gold coin, with minimal scattered ticks and a great deal of eye appeal. The strike is sharp throughout both sides. A super example for a last-year-of-type set. Population: 30 in 65 (1 in 65+), 13 finer (10/14).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 7KDU, PCGS# 8011)

    Weight: 5.02 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
