Goldberg Coins and Collectibles



Sale 63


 
Lot 1482

1882. NGC graded MS-64. A splendid and very choice example. Well struck with delicate light golden toning over flashy reflective fields. Only 1500 made. Both obverse and reverse are significantly above average in luster, mostly prooflike, and exhibit an attractive light greenish gold color. The eye appeal is clearly outstanding, a consideration that goes beyond the assigning of a Mint State 64 numerical grade. All told this is one of the better $3s of any date in the 1880s you can hope to obtain.

In opposition to the 1882 Proofs, all circulation strikes show traces of repunching above the final date digit. It is not an overdate. Pop 16, 22 finer (PCGS # 8004) .
Estimated Value $9,000 - 10,000.

 
Realized $10,350
