David Akers (1975/88): This variety was not known until Harry X. Boosel discovered it not too many years ago. The 1873 Closed 3 gold dollar is one of the rarest coins in the series and certainly one of the most unpublicized. The Closed 3 in the date is just that - closed, and on first glance, many would mistake it for an 8 and certainly over the years, it is likely that some 1873 Closed 3 gold dollars have been sold as 1878's and vice versa.
