Legend Rare Coin Auctions Auction The Regency Auction 28 Sep-2018 Legend Numismatics has been a long time student and fan of this series. We can NOT say we have seen many other 1865's that were any better or even higher grades. Prior to 3rd party grading, a coin like this would have been labeled a GEM. Outstanding surfaces are way superior to most MS62's you will ever see. We compare these to MS64's. Even using a strong glass, all you can find is a very tiny tick or two and no big lines. Surprising deep mirrors resemble proof surfaces, but were probably from an early striking. In addition to the clear, clean, and highly reflective mirrors, there is a bold luster. Both sides are a totally original GEM gold color. Only one microscopic red toning dot can be found on the reverse. That helps prove the coin is original and is unmessed with. There is great cameo contrast as well. Miss Liberty and every detail fully struck and are thickly frosted. The eye appeal is phenomenal! Only 1140 were minted. PCGS 0, NGC 3, CAC 1. PCGS has graded only this coin MS62+. There are NO auction records for either a MS62 or MS62+. We believe the current Collector's Universe Value of $22,000 is way too low. If you collect $3, Superb rare gold, or Civil War coins, then this coin will be a great fit into any collection. You certainly do not get many opportunities to buy many 1865 gold coins of any denomination! Cert. Number 25009557 PCGS # 7986
