Lot Description
1890 $1 MS66 PCGS. At the March 2006 Palm Beach Signature Sale, an 1890 Morgan dollar in MS65 was noted for its quality and as being "...tied for the finest certified by PCGS." There is another coin that now tops the Population Report, this magnificently preserved MS66, which joins three other coins certified by NGC at the peak of the combined populations (7/06). The present example has exceptional, brilliant luster and a solid strike for this issue, which typically has dull luster and some striking weakness. Though a few tiny marks appear in the fields, these have little impact on this coin's vast eye appeal. Never before has Heritage offered an 1890 dollar in MS66, and this unprecedented event may not be repeated for some time. For the sophisticated collector of this series, this is an extraordinary opportunity.
