Lot Description
1859 $3 MS65 PCGS. An impressive condition rarity in the three dollar series, the 1859 has a relatively high mintage of 15,558 coins, but most survivors are in lower grades. This impressive Gem has vibrant yellow luster with gorgeous orange toning on both sides. The virtually pristine fields exhibit nearly complete diagonal striations on both sides. Only a few minuscule surface marks prevent a higher grade. For the connoisseur, this Gem is a real prize, one of just five that PCGS has certified, with only two finer coins (3/09). Gem representatives of the 1859 three only appear on the market once every two years. From The American Princess Collection of $3 Gold.
