Description 1874 $3 AU53 NGC. CAC. The Mint Act of 1873 required the destruction and recoinage of old gold coins, and the Mint responded with a surge of three dollar gold pieces far exceeding recent mintages. In fact, it was the third-largest production of the long-running series. This About Uncirculated example shows light wear but few marks. A hint of mint luster remains at the margins. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $969.38. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
