Lot Description
1861 Three-Dollar Gold Piece. AU-53 (PCGS). This is a very scarce 18th century gold issue that seldom makes an appearance in the numismatic market. From a mintage of just 5,959 business strikes, this 1861 Three has survived with overall sharp striking detail and ample evidence of a prooflike finish from the dies. Rich honey-gold color to both sides, with no individually mentionable distractions among the scattered abrasions.
