A low mintage issue with honest wear! Only 14,250 three dollar gold pieces were struck at the San Francisco Mint in 1857 and the entire mintage was released into circulation, with no examples saved by contemporary numismatists. The 1857-S is a rare issue in AU grades and Mint State pieces are extremely rare. This coin would be a great addition to any type set or $3 gold set.
