$3 1881 AU 50 PCGS
Lightly toned in a blend of sunset and soft golden mint luster. Fairly well struck. Moderate minute ticks and scuffs. No particularly hard or detracting contact marks. Just light rubbing. Semi-prooflike surfaces. One of the most important dates within the three-dollar gold piece series; just 500 business strikes were coined. It is, in fact, the lowest mintage date struck for circulation. PCGS has certified a total of just 71 pieces.
