Lot Description
1872 $1 MS64 PCGS. This High Date variant is most likely the most frequently seen of several die pairings used to strike 1872 dollars. It is characterized by the date placed high in the exergue, the 1 and 8 clear of each other, and the date more heavily impressed than on the so-called Normal Date. The mint luster on this piece is extraordinary with a bright, frosted finish that has occasional streaks of light russet toning on each side. The strike is well but not fully brought up, and there are a few small, shallow abrasions on each side. Population: 28 in 64, 3 finer (3/11).
