Lot Description
1860 $3 AU55 PCGS. The 1860 three dollar gold piece claims a nominal mintage of 7,036 pieces, but the issue is more difficult to locate than the production figure would suggest. Most examples were released into circulation, and probably none were saved for numismatic purposes. The present coin is an attractive Choice AU example, with just a few traces of light wear on the devices and lustrous orange-gold surfaces.
