Lot Description
1890 $1 MS66 NGC. Despite a mintage of over 16.8 million pieces, this Philadelphia is an extreme rarity above the Gem level, with just five pieces in the combined certified population at MS66 and none finer (11/08). This Premium Gem, one of four certified by NGC, is strongly lustrous and generally silver-white with just a touch of coral-pink over parts of the centers. Solidly struck around the centers, though a touch of softness visits the central portrait and the eagle's breast. Carefully preserved, as expected for the grade, with only trivial faults on the devices. From The Sanderson Family Collection.
