Service Catalog # 8000
Denomination $3
Description 1878 $3 MS61 NGC. The type collector need not look any further for a three dollar representative. Bowers and Winter (2005) explain that the 1878 three dollar gold issue "stands as the most plentiful of all dates, by far, in Mint State, giving it 'common' status. However ... there is no such thing as a common $3 coin of any date." Peach-gold surfaces present softly frosted luster and strongly defined devices. Wispy marks and ticks appear throughout, but none merit individual reference. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $1880.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
