1878 $3 NGC MS65

DLRC #: 87573 // PCGS #: 8000

A fabulous example of this date and easily the finest circulation strike “Three” in this sale. The obverse is fully lustrous, semi-brilliant, with deep mint frost swirling about. The reverse is more satiny in appearance, with a deep, creamy luster mint frosting that seems to go on forever. This beautiful Gem would be a welcome addition to any high-grade Type set.
