Lot Description
1803 $1 Large 3 AU58 PCGS. B-6, BB-255, R.2. A stunning near-Mint example, this 1803 Large 3 dollar has nearly full luster with only a trace of wear on the high points. Both sides exhibit satiny surfaces beneath lovely gold, blue, violet, and iridescent toning. The design elements are bold and the surfaces are wonderful. Slight doubling is evident at the lower left curve of the 3, suggesting an early die state. In fact, there are no die cracks, clash marks, or other die defects on either side, save for a slight extension of the reverse letters to the border. Population: 2 in 58, 6 finer (8/10).
