Lot Description
1859 $3 MS62 NGC. CAC. Examples of the 1859 three dollar piece are readily available, although Mint State pieces are scarce. Also elusive are examples with good eye appeal, and usually a higher level Mint State coin is necessary to gain the attractiveness that most collectors seek. Although a little weak at the lower reverse, this specimen is frosty and fully lustrous with pleasing honey-gold color and hints of delicate orange toning. Census: 31 in 62, 32 finer (7/11).
