1886. PCGS graded MS-62. Only 1,000 minted of which merely 550 examples are estimated to have survived. Nice prooflike fields. In terms of PCGS certification it doesn't get any better than this, fewer than 50 graded at or above this level! Both obverse and reverse are Prooflike with some evidence of mint luster, about par for the course for a typical low-mintage $3 from the 1880s. The striking is sound, significantly above average and among the finest that exists anywhere, with good detail on the hair and the visually rare leaf detail on the wreath. In any numismatic era the 1886 has been viewed as a great rarity. Pop 21; 13 finer, 1 in 62+, 6 in 63, 5 in 64, 1 in 65 (PCGS # 8008) .
Estimated Value $6,000 - 6,500.
The Dandelion Collection.


 
Realized $6,038
