1887 $3 PR45 NGC. Only 160 proof 1887 three dollar gold pieces were minted in 1887. Curiously, examples are known with the obverse and reverse dies oriented in four different variations. The present coin is oriented in medal fashion, with the obverse and reverse dies aligned in parallel. The present coin shows only light wear on the design elements, and much of the reflective proof surface remains in sheltered areas around the devices.

A bigger error is that someone put this into circulation. On the other hand, I have been busting up my 200x clad proof sets and spending the coins.

My dad bought us kids those proof sets AND Texaco planes. All in their original packaging. The grandkids had fun playing with the planes. We got $5 each for the proof sets, probably much less now.

Regarding the $3 dollar coin, color me indifferent.

Super interesting to see a proof grade under a 50, and pretty funky to see a proof that ended up with medal alignment by mistake, I assumed the proofs got a little extra attention. And on a piece less common like a $3? Definitely surprised
