Lot Description
1872 $3 MS62 PCGS. An amazing example of a scarce date, seldom encountered finer. This 1872 three dollar piece has fully mirrored fields with deep orange-gold surfaces. The low business-strike mintage of 2,000 pieces is responsible for the considerable prooflikeness appearing throughout, with pretty yellow-orange color, a few stray, undistracting abrasions, and some light field chatter. The devices are highly lustrous and the overall appearance resembles that of a Cameo proof, although it is clearly a business strike. The reverse die is rotated perhaps 20 degrees counterclockwise from the obverse. Population: 16 in 62, 10 finer (2/09).
