Description 1862 $3 AU55 NGC. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. The issue's mintage of 5,750 coins is remarkably low in a larger context, yet it tends to get lost amongst the other low-mintage dates in the three dollar gold series. As a result, this scarce issue fails to command the attention it rightfully deserves. This Choice About Uncirculated example features light yellow and green-gold surfaces with partial luster in the interstices. The design motifs are typically bold with light friction over the high points, and a touch of incompleteness on Liberty's neck. Other than a handful of scattered marks, the only impairments that merit mention include a reed mark above Liberty's bust and a small linear depression to the right of the U in UNITED. 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 @ $22.50; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $4406.25. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
