PCGS Coin Number: 7971
The New Orleans Mint produced $3 gold pieces for only one year 1854. Despite a low mintage; the 1854-O is relatively easy to obtain in most grades; except Mint State. More than a dozen Uncirculated examples have been certified; the finest of which grades MS63. That coin; an NGC MS63 sold privately in 2007 for over $100;000.. Striking quality for this date is generally good; although the original details were weakly impressed into the dies. The finest example known is a prooflike gem that has eluded the certification services and auction for the past dozen years. The Smithsonian has three specimens; although none grade better than AU-55.
