The 1873 Closed 3 (old name) or Close 3 (current nomenclature) coins were struck early in the year and the date logotype for all denominations was modified following complaints that the digit looked like an 8. Among Liberty eagles, the entire 800-coin mintage for the year was produced in January 1873, and none were minted with the modified Open 3 date style. Proof coins were preferred over Mint State coins in the 19th century, so no circulation strikes were saved at the time of issue, despite the low mintage. As a result, high grade survivors are non-existent. The NGC population is only 2 with 9 higher, none better than AU58.
