1873 $3 NGC AU Details (Closed 3, Improperly Cleaned)

DLRC #: 316496 // PCGS #: 7995

One of the great rarities in U.S. gold issues, researches believe fewer than 100 coins were struck of the 1873 Princess. Rare in any grade and highly desired by collectors. This example is a great, affordable piece for the collector who cannot afford an original piece. It has a great look with sharp details. The holder says AU details, but we would argue for unc details.
