Lot Description
1861 $3 MS64 NGC. Ex: Princess Collection. Well struck and mildly prooflike, with heavily striated fields and a few faint slide marks in the obverse field that do not impact the considerable eye appeal.

Only 6,072 pieces were minted for circulation in 1861, with few set aside by contemporary numismatists. Population: 3 in 64, 4 finer (4/03).
