1868 Three-Dollar Gold Piece. AU-55 (PCGS). A bold degree of retained luster engages both sides of this specimen, with a broad array of mint frost in the protected areas. We note a spot of green detritus on the reverse that connects the first 1 to the 8 of the date (perhaps removable with conservation). One of just 4,850 circulation strikes of the date produced.
