1858 $3.00 PCGS AU58

The 1858 is among the rarest Three Dollar gold pieces from the Philadelphia mint but it doesn't get the publicity of other issues such as the 1865 and 1877. Just 2,133 were produced and this is an issue that is almost never seen above AU55. In fact, there have been no AU58's sold at auction since 9/08 and the last PCGS AU58 to cross the auction block was in 6/06. This lightly worn piece is very lustrous but it does show some scattered ticks on the surfaces as is so common with this date. If you can even find an Uncirculated 1858 three dollar, it would cost around double the price of this nice slider.
