Description 1868 $3 AU58 NGC. For type collectors, the 1868 issue is desirable because of its high survival rate, and a mintage of only 4,850 pieces undoubtedly amplifies its appeal. This near-Mint example exhibits olive-green accents over otherwise deep yellow-gold surfaces. Typical for the issue, each side displays sharply struck devices and partial luster hidden within the protected areas. Wispy abrasions and minor marks are dispersed evenly throughout, with only a tick on Liberty's chin worthy of individual mention. NGC has certified 45 examples in higher numeric grades (8/14). Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $2352.35. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
