Lot Description
1868 $3 MS65 NGC. While the 1868 is hardly a scarce issue in average condition, it is a significant coin in Mint State and rare as a Gem. The average example of this date is only XF, and of the few Uncirculated coins extant, this is at the upper end of the Condition Census. This is a splendid coin that exhibits bright, frosted mint luster that is virtually undisturbed by contact marks of any importance. Sharply defined, except on the bow knot at the bottom of the wreath, as often found, the coin possesses a considerable overlay of pinkish-rose patina. Population: 3 in 65, 1 finer (4/04).
