Lot Description
1859 $3 MS61 PCGS. The production increase the three dollar gold denomination enjoyed from 1858 to 1859 was short-lived, and the next year, the downward spiral of mintages continued. This unworn piece from a small five-figure mintage has luminous yellow-gold surfaces that show elements of orange. Minimally marked and pleasing. Population: 13 in 61, 72 finer (1/09).
