1879 $3 Gold. NGC graded MS-63. CAC Approved. Tremendous detail from a very minting, which collectors like better to see than wishy-washy detail as found on some dates in this truncated series; furthermore, the surfaces show nice prooflike reflection with sharp golden frosted hues for the devices. Only 3000 coins struck. The contrast between the two is outstanding! Fortunately for bidders, this coin was struck with the controlled precision you'd expect to see throughout the outer peripheral areas, while thoroughly bold and uncompromised at the portrait and hair, the plumes of the bonnet and all leaves in the Longacre-inspired "wreath of cereals" design on the reverse (PCGS # 8001) .
Estimated Value $7,500 - 8,000.

Realized $8,913
