Goldberg Coins and Collectibles



Sale 65


 
Lot 1270

1873. No Arrows Open 3. PCGS graded VG-10. CAC Approved. Even toning. A very rare date since most half dollars minted in 1873 have a Closed 3 in the date. A quick glance at the 1873 Closed 3 date, made early in the year, resembled "1878," as the knobs on the 3 were close together. The Open 3 was created by filing away most of the bottom knob on the 3 of the date logotype and trimming the knob to a smaller size; dies punched with this modified date logotype are called Open 3 (PCGS # 6337) .
Estimated Value $3,000 - 3,500.

 
Realized $3,565
