||1873 G$1 Open 3 MS62 Prooflike NGC. CAC. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. The Open 3 variant of the 1873 gold dollar is a plentiful issue overall, but examples certified as Prooflike are scarce. This representative shows deeply mirrored fields and subtle cameo contrast. Scattered abrasions limit the grade, but the sharp strike balances the visual appeal. Census: 11 in 62 Prooflike, 12 finer (9/14). Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
