1854 $3 MS 66
|Category:||Three Dollar (1854-1889)|
Near perfect Gem three! This is the first year of issue for the three dollar gold series (1854-1889). Like all three dollar gold, the 1854 is rare in all grades and very rare in Gem condition. This Superb Gem has mark-free, virtually perfect surfaces, as nice as you’ll ever see on a three dollar gold piece, or any U.S. gold coin coin for that matter. Gold is a soft metal and most gold coins have numerous marks and scratches. Not this beauty! The strike is ultra sharp with all hair and wreath detail bold and distinct. The luster is creamy iridescence and totally original. This Superb Gem is one of only nine examples graded MS66 in the past 36 years by PCGS, with just four graded higher. This is a great example for a world class U.S. gold type coin set, or a complete set of Three Dollar gold.
