1878 $3 Gold. NGC graded MS-65. A lovely lustrous specimen shimmering with mint frost. An ideal coin for a gem quality 12 piece type set. The resplendent example offered here not only surpasses the normally seen luster woes, but its sparkling surfaces border on an even higher grade. In fact, only scattered tiny marks can be seen with the aid of magnification. Struck with systematic exactness throughout excepting the usual weak areas at the ribbon bow of the wreath along a few topmost hair curls worn by Liberty. Pop 148: 53 in 66; 17 in 67. In a new NGC 4 pronged holder (PCGS # 8000) .
Estimated Value $12,000 - 13,000.
