Item Description:
An elusive 19th century gold proof, the 1877 proof three-dollar gold pieces hails from a minute mintage of just 20 pieces struck, of which an estimated 12-14 examples are extant today. A standout among the rare surviving specimens, this gem proof beauty is bested by only three PCGS examples graded numerically finer. An expertly preserved piece with frosty design elements standing out in needle sharp detail from deeply mirrored fields. Rich orange-golden coloration shines uniformly throughout with areas of wonderful orange-peel texture. The overall quality and eye appeal are off the charts, as confirmed by the CAC seal of approval.
