Lot Description
1860 $3 MS63 PCGS. With an initial mintage of only 7,036 pieces, the 1860 three dollar gold piece is a scarce coin today. Q. David Bowers states, "Only a few hundred coins exist of this date, most of which are in circulated grades." This piece offers significant "wow" factor, well struck with frosty devices and hints of lavender on deep sunset-orange surfaces. Population: 15 in 63, 16 finer (5/12). Ex: Cincinnati Central States (Heritage, 5/2009), lot 3714.
