Lot Description
1887-S $1 MS63 NGC (MS65 Paramount). Ex: Redfield Collection. A brilliant, frost-white example, this attractive dollar displays the start of blue and gold toning at the obverse margin as the coin rests in its original red MS65 Paramount holder. The eye appeal is considerable. A few abrasions on Liberty's portrait and a scrape at the stars beneath the hair curls define the Select Uncirculated grade from NGC. The strike is full on the obverse as well as the reverse, which is untoned and unabraded. From the Collection of Donald E. Bently, sold for the benefit of the Bently Foundation.
