Description 1874 $3 AU58 NGC. The Mint melted worn gold coins of varying denominations taken in by the Treasury Department to produce 41,800 three dollar gold coins in 1874. The issue is plentiful in all grades, and NGC notes that the largest proportion of the certified population falls into the AU58 grade level. This near-Mint example exhibits ample remaining luster and minimal friction over the well-struck design elements. The orange-gold surfaces are remarkably smooth and devoid of any singularly distracting impairments. An ideal type representative. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $1410.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
