Description & Analysis

The 1862 three dollar had a mintage of 5,750 pieces. That number is not unusually low for the series, but when one considers the hoarding and exportation of gold and silver coins during the Civil War it is not surprising that so few pieces exist today. Only 30 to 40 Uncirculated coins are believed to exist.
