Only 4,000 business strike 1866 three dollar gold pieces were made and this date tends to be much harder to find than the comparably valued 1867 and 1868. The 1866 is not often seen above the AU55 to AU58 range and I regard it as an underrated issue.

This lustrous example displays light green-gold color and has no serious marks on the obverse or reverse. The wear is light and even and the balance between the two sides is excellent.

The last auction record for a PCGS AU55 example of this date was Heritage 6/13: 5660 which sold for $2,233.

For the collector who is seeking a nice gold coin in this price range, this 1866 three dollar offers very good overall value.
