Penultimate Date 1888 $3 Highlights Our Upcoming iAuction #3493

A Choice MS-63 PCGS-certified 1883 three-dollar gold piece is but one of many interesting and exciting coins coming up for bids in our next iAuction numismatic sales event. Since their inception, our iAuctions have gained momentum, and more and more collectors turn to us now on a weekly basis to add great coins to their collections. Not just a resting place for coins of average quality, the iAuctions have become perfect venues for choice U.S. coins. This week’s highlight is a sparkling and frosty rose-gold 1888 $3 with warm luster and excellent eye appeal. A tiny depression in the obverse field and another in the reverse field are the only marks of note, and probably all that stand between the assigned MS-63 level and a finer grade. Only 5,000 1888 three-dollar gold pieces were struck. Fortunately for today’s collectors, many $3 pieces from the 1880s survive today thanks to speculation in the series – many were put aside at time of issue and never spent. If an affordable gold $3 is on your current want list, this sparkling iAuction specimen could be just the thing!
