1854-O $3 Gold. NGC graded AU-53. This is the only "O" mint $3 Gold coin. Wear points include the topmost waves of hair above the brow and at the shoulder, as well as the puffs of the headdress. Since the design wasn't as thoroughly impressed into the planchet as on P-mint threes of this year, some of the feathers themselves lack definition even though this area of the design is far beneath the top surface and so rarely receives wear until a coin has been in circulation many years. As the lone "O" mint $3, a total of 24,000 coins were minted (PCGS # 7971) .
Estimated Value $3,500 - 4,000.

Realized $5,750
