1862 $3 Gold. PCGS graded MS-63. Frosty and nicely toned. Only 5,750 struck. Some marks on the face. With its low mintage, usually only an intermittent circulated 1862 three is to be had. However, there are a few case where in faithful-to-the-standards Mint condition coin turns up for sale. This carefully preserved MS63 has noticeable die striations in the fields, a Mint-made occurrence common to the few know 1862 threes in Uncirculated condition. These striations aid in creating a reflective appearance that is akin to prooflikes, but also blended with mint frost. Unlike several others we have had pass through our sales over the years, this choice coin was struck from unclashed dies, there are no clash marks present. Lastly, the devices show accurate relief from a full blow by the dies. Pop 8; 18 finer; 10 in 64; 5 in 65; 3 in 66. (PCGS # 7983) .
Estimated Value $9,000 - 9,500.
