Choice for the grade with attractive golden and pale orange toning. Bright frosty finish sparkling underneath the toning with dancing luster on both sides almost mimicking the cartwheel luster seen on later-issue gold coins. Difficult to find in Mint State condition.

The handsome Longacre first "cereal wreath" which is used on the flying eagle cents, the gold dollars (Type Two and Three) as well as this $3 gold piece, is comprised of corn, wheat, cotton and tobacco. His second wreath, used on numerous pattern coins as well as the half dimes and dimes during his tenure in office, is comprised of cotton, tobacco, sugar cane, corn, wheat and oak leaves. This is the first design of a cereal wreath created by the Mint's chief engraver, 1844-1869. (PCGS 7969)
