Description 1865 $3 VF25 NGC. CAC. Less than half of 1865 three dollar gold coins were struck in Philadelphia (1,140 pieces) compared to the previous year. The result is the second-lowest mintage in the series from its inception in 1854 to 1880, excluding the 1854-D. The date is scarce in all grades, and this Very Fine representative serves as an excellent opportunity to affordably acquire an example. Deep reddish-gold color blankets stunningly original surfaces worthy of a CAC approval sticker. Little detail remains over the hair, yet LIBERTY and the headdress feathers are clear, as are the legends on each side. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $3290.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
