1889 $3 Gold. NGC graded MS-66. Only 2,300 pieces minted. A nice untoned coin housed in the new NGC 4 prong holder. Loaded with gem luster. This is a lovely, healthy-glowing specimen, one whose full-color obverse and reverse being essentially untoned, beams with frosty luster. All this is perhaps obvious from the photos. What we need to emphasize also is that the strike is customarily crisp and detailed for the 1889 release, the last year of issue, with the usual sharp metal flows into the deepest recesses of the dies on both sides including full plumes on Liberty's feather headdress. Pop 8; none finer at NGC (PCGS # 8011) .
Estimated Value $19,000 - 20,000.

Realized $21,275
