Lot 1719

Rare Superb Gem BU 1863 $3 Gold. NGC graded MS-68. Boldly struck from sharply clashed dies, the surfaces are remarkable for a coin of this grade. Close examination reveals some minor die marks around the rim and on the wreath. A phenomenal rarity in this grade and worthy of the finest collection of Three Dollar Gold pieces.
A rare and precious survivor of the five thousand pieces coined in the middle of the Civil War. Most have perished, simply disappeared. The combined grading services have made just 2 coins in this grade, and none better. And it's a resplendidly beautiful coin! We really expect active bidding on this condition rarity--so, if it interests you, gather your thoughts and get ready to bid strongly.
