1860-S $3 Gold. NGC graded AU-58 CAC Approved. Well struck and delicately toned. A carefully protected high-end circulated specimen with residual luster that peeks through the naturally toned surface. Subtle hints of champagne and orange toning brings out the expansiveness of the strike while it enhances the unexpectedly beautiful eye appeal of this scarce S-mint $3 gold coin. There is the usual minor weak detail in the upper feather ends and on the bow and lower leaves of the wreath. Only 7000 minted and most survivors are only encountered well worn. Pop 18; 5 finer with 1 in 60, 4 in 64 (PCGS # 7981) .
Estimated Value $15,000 - 16,000.

 
Realized $14,375
