1884 $3 Gold. PCGS graded Proof 65. In PCGS holder 04592497. Lovely rich golden toning on both sides. Housed in an old green holder. A visually striking Gem Proof of the date, here with unfrosted motifs yet deeply mirrored fields that display much mint sparkle. An attractive Proof $3 from a mintage whose pieces, rather than being struck all at once, were delivered in groups from the Medal Department at the Mint throughout the year, and as called for by public demand. It may be the case that only 70 or 80 Proofs of the 1884 issue are still extant, which makes for a certain availability when today's collectors desire a delightful specimen for a Proof gold collection. We note here with pleasure rich original toning, which certainly speaks volumes about the inherent quality of this beautiful coin. Only 106 Proofs struck. Pop 9; 3 finer, 1 in 66, 2 in 67 (PCGS # 8048) .
Estimated Value $30,000 - 33,000.

 
Realized $36,800
