$3 1888 MS 65 NGC

Full vibrant golden sunset mint luster. Quite well struck. Absolutely minimal minute surface marks. A few faint hairlines in the obverse field. A gorgeous Gem quality example, with outstanding eye appeal. Just 5,000 business strikes were coined. Only 33 pieces have been NGC certified at this level; five finer. An important offering as both a date, and a type coin representing the classic three-dollar gold piece denomination.
