Lot Description
1861 $3 AU50 NGC. As with almost all three dollar issues, the 1861 had a low mintage. In this case only 5,959 pieces were produced. Today it is believed that only 180 to 230 circulated examples remain. The light orange-gold surfaces show numerous, small handling marks on each side, and the high points of the design exhibit light, even friction.
