Description 1874 $3 AU55 NGC. CAC. Despite a large mintage for the year, Mint Director James Pollock recommended the three dollar gold denomination be discontinued because of its closeness in weight, value, and size to the quarter eagle. Yet mintage of the largely unused three dollar pieces continued for another fifteen years. The present coin is a choice, original AU with olive-gold coloration and orange accents around the legends and devices. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $1028.13.
