1862 $3 Gold. NGC graded MS-62. Mostly untoned. Scarce date in mint state. Carefully preserved throughout, the surfaces show even golden bloom and there are only a few light abrasions or hairlines on either side. Fortunately for bidders, this coin, too, was struck with the controlled precision you'd expect to see on a $3 gold piece (but rarely do). Throughout the outer peripheral areas, everything is bold; while thoroughly bold and uncompromised at the central locations as well. Only 5,750 coins struck. Pop 11; 13 finer.
Estimated Value $7,000 - 7,500.

Realized $8,625
