Lot Description
1859 $3 AU58 NGC. The 1859 is a better date for two reasons: the mintage is less than most other issues from the 1850s and, unlike later dates, relatively few pieces were set aside in Mint State. A majority of certified examples are in circulated grades. The present apricot-gold coin shows only slight wear near the forehead and above the ear. Field marks are minor and never distracting.
