1863 $3 Three Dollar PCGS MS61


PCGS Coin Number: 7984

This is a great Civil War date; with a low mintage of an even 5;000 coins. The 1863 $3 gold piece is slightly rarer than the 1861 and nearly on par with the 1862. However; of the trio; the 1863 issue is notable for several stunning examples; including a single NGC MS-68 that sold for $80;500 in 1999. In circulated grades; the 1863 date is fairly easy to obtain through AU-55. Most Mint State examples feature bright luster; rarely with any prooflike tendencies. Clash marks are the rule for this date (even the MS-68 mentioned above showed heavy die clashing); as are striations on early die states. Auction appearances are sparse; usually an average of four coins per year.

Due to market volatility, prices and availiability on coins are subject to change.
