Lot Description
1859 $3 MS62 PCGS. The mintage of three dollar gold pieces in 1859 for circulation was 15,558 pieces, already a sign of trouble for the denomination, which was never popular. This example offers deep, rich orange-gold surfaces with ice-blue on the high points. A few thin scrapes account for the grade. Population: 42 in 62, 45 finer (8/11).
