A pleasing first year 'Three' with lustrous yellow-gold surfaces and strong eye appeal.
Outstanding for the grade and issue with strong detail and surfaces that are much more attractive than typically seen. The only 'O' mint 'Three' with a mintage of just 24,000.
Solid yellow-gold surfaces. Difficult to obtain in all grades and even scarcer than it's small mintage of 6,600 suggests.
Solid detail with pleasing surfaces. Akers called the '55-S, "one of the rarest and certainly among the most unappreciated dates in the series". He goes on to state that it has the lowest average grade in the entire series.
One of just 2 'Threes' struck in San Francisco with a modest 34,500 minted. This is a problem-free example with strong detail.

Strong detail with lustrous orange-gold surfaces.
Satiny yellow-gold luster and well struck with beautiful surfaces that are exceptionally clean for the grade.
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.

From the final year of the Civil War with a mintage of just 1,140 which was the lowest until 1881. This issue saw heavy commercial use with only a handful of mint state survivors. This is a well detailed and lustrous example.
Just 4,000 minted and an issue that apparently saw heavy circulation as there are less than 50 examples graded mint state at PCGS. This particular coin is very pleasing with flashy orange-gold luster and a solid strike.
A nice bold strike with flashy orange-gold luster over semi proof-like surfaces. Quite scarce with a mintage of just 2,600 and seldom-seen in mint state.
Radiant frosty yellow-gold luster and a solid strike. A scarce date with a mintage of just 4,850 coins.
