One of the rarest coins in the series with 6,000 minted and very few survivors. Akers states that this date had the fewest number of auction appearances, of any regular issue, in the 238 auctions he used for the survey in his book. This example has solid detail and nice bright lustrous surfaces.
CAC. Nice original lustrous surfaces with just a touch of 'rub'. 7,036 minted and a date that saw heavy use in commerce as few have survived in high grade.
Just 7,036 minted and a date that saw heavy circulation. The survival rate seems quite low with very few remaining in high grade. This is one of the finest examples with vibrant honey-gold luster over pleasing surfaces that are devoid of significant marks. PCGS has graded just 4 coins numerically finer.
A scarce Civil War issue with a mere 5,000 pieces struck. This is a pleasing problem-free example with lustrous antique gold surfaces and strong detail.

A scarce Civil War issue that saw a mere 2,630 minted.
CAC. A scarce Civil War date with a mintage of just 2,630 coins. This is a very pleasing Choice AU with original lustrous surfaces and a just a touch of wear.
Scarce with a mintage of just 4,000 and , unlike the dates after 1878, there are few high grade survivors. This is a very flashy semi proof-like example with strong orange-gold luster and a sharp strike. The surfaces reveal very few marks and the eye appeal is outstanding!
Radiant frosty yellow-gold luster and a solid strike. A scarce date with a mintage of just 4,850 coins.
Rich satiny luster and a strong strike with nice clean surfaces. Just 4,850 minted but an issue that saw heavy circulation. Much rarer in mint state than most of the later dates even though many of those had lower mintages.
Akers considered this one of the most underrated dates of the 1860's and only 3 examples have graded higher than this one at PCGS. This is a wonderful coin with bright lustrous semi proof-like surfaces and frosted design features. The strike is sharp and the marks are few and non-distracting from very strong eye appeal. Just 2,500 minted.
CAC. Super flashy with frosted devices and reflective surfaces. Outstanding for the grade and the only MS-62 coin that CAC has approved. Only 14 coins have graded higher at PCGS. A very tough date with a mere 3,500 coins minted.
Flashy orange-gold luster with semi proof-like fields and nice frost on the design. The strike is bold and the wonderful originality, coupled with a modest 'cameo', gives this scarce 'Three' exceptional eye appeal. Only 1,300 minted.
CAC. Explosive original mint luster and a sharp strike with beautiful satiny surfaces. A great choice for the collector seeking a memorable 'Three' for their 'type' or 'date' set.
