$3 1855 PCGS MS64+
This is a more elusive date then most people know. We had to buy this coin, not only for price reasons but it is SUPER HIGH END! We rarely see real GEM coins like this offered.
First, this coin actually has real and bold contrast. You do not have to imagine it. Bold semi prooflike mirrors are exceedingly clean overall. With a glass you can see the extensive die polishing (no, this coin has NOT been cleaned) and a tiny tick or two. We can easily see how in the days pre certification this coin would have been called an MS65. Both sides are a beautiful original bright yellow gold color. There are NO spots or discolorations anywhere. Miss Liberty and the details of course stand out with thick frost and are sharply strike. The eye appeal is phenomenal!
PCGS 29, NGC 21, CAC 10. PCGS has graded only 4 in MS64+. The last MS64+ to sell in auction brought $11,163.00 10/2015. However the 2 prior pieces to sell brought $15+$16,000.00 each. Do NOT be fooled by the pops here. These are very difficult coins to come by. To find a full cameo looking SUPER HIGH END GEM like this is really hard. If a PCGS CAC MS65 were to exist it would cost and easy $35,000.00+ . Opportunity knocks louder then you will ever know!
This coin is all about the jaw dropping quality.
