Popular and scarce New Orleans mint issue. A wonderful, pure white example at the high end of the MS63 grade. If this were a more common date, we'd expect to see it in an MS64 holder but PCGS tends to be very picky on this key issue. You'll love this piece. CAC approved for quality.
Ron Guth writes that "there are few eagles rarer than the 1873 Close 3," and its mintage of just 800 coins make it the "lowest of any eagle up until that time" with the 1875 and 1877 coming in at even fewer later in the decade. Often overlooked by collectors and dealers, the date is appreciated by specialists as PCGS suggests that only 30 to 35 pieces are known, with only a single piece that survives as uncirculated. This rare, elusive offering of this date is an opportunity appreciated by the rare gold specialists.

Beautiful near mint state example of this popular three-year type. Rare and desirable in this quality. In fact, there are only 3 other examples graded as such.
An especially rare gem example of this popular Spanish Dollar-size coin. The final date of the Phillip V issue, this date also includes Ferdinand VI in the shield side legend, with the Philip V type priced slightly higher. We know of possibly another example of the type in gem grade, but it is exceedingly rare.
