Lot Description
1873 $3 Closed 3 MS61 PCGS. One of the most baffling and inexplicable issues in the entire three dollar gold series; at least the 1870-S issue's origin story as a coin intended for a cornerstone is plausible, whereas no truly satisfying theory regarding the 1873 Closed 3 three dollar gold piece has been floated yet. This well struck survivor has strongly mirrored honey-gold fields that contrast with the paler straw-gold found on the devices. A number of small digs and wispy abrasions affect each side, but the overall eye appeal remains strong. Population: 5 in 61, 4 finer (3/09).
