Lot Description
1861 $3 AU58 PCGS. Although the mintages of other gold denominations at Philadelphia soared in 1861, three dollar actually declined, from 7,036 pieces in 1860 to 5,959 coins in 1861. Since hardly anybody collected U.S. gold coins at the time, a majority of the few hundred survivors are in XF to AU grades. The present honey-gold slider is nicely struck and only lightly abraded.
