All U.S. Gold Errors are very scarce. $3 Indian Gold Pieces are scarce even as regular Gold Type Coins. Major Mint Errors on $3 Gold pieces are unheard of. This is only the second known broadstruck $3 Gold Piece for the entire series. This piece is an uncentered broadstruck and looks 5% off-center. It exhibits considerable luster and has a very attractive overall appearance. The other known broadstruck $3 piece was discovered when the Bolt collection of Major Mint Errors was sold in 1974.
This coin was recently featured in the Superior Galleries Pre-Long Beach Coin Sale that took place October 1-2, 2001. This spectacular and extremely rare Gold Error belongs in the most discriminating collection of either Mint Errors or U.S. Gold Coins.
