Lot Description
1868 $3 MS64 NGC. The 1868 has one of the highest survival rates of the three dollar series despite its relatively low mintage of 4,850 business strikes. Even examples through MS63 can be located with little trouble. A melange of peach, yellow-green, lavender, and mint-green bathes both sides of this near-Gem specimen, and the strike is sharp throughout. A few small marks, including one in the lower left reverse field, preclude Gem status. Census: 7 in 64, 3 finer (5/09).
