Lot Description
1887-O $1 MS66 Prooflike NGC. This is a dazzling, brilliant coin that has excellent reflectivity in the fields and smooth features on Liberty's cheek. Softly defined over the ear of Liberty, but the strike is above average for this usually weakly struck New Orleans issue. In MS66 Prooflike condition, this is one of only two certified as such by NGC (with none finer), and PCGS has only certified one in MS66 (again, none are finer) (11/08). Ex: Dr. Hoffnagle Collection of Morgan Dollars (Heritage, 1/2005), lot 30310, which realized $7,475. From The Sanderson Family Collection.
