Lot Description
1892 $1 MS66 PCGS. Although an easily available date in most grades, the 1892 Morgan dollar is a rarity in Premium Gem, and Superb quality examples are unknown. Not only is this example tied for the finest certified, but it exhibits exceptional aesthetic appeal. Both sides are fully brilliant and highly lustrous with radiant mint frost. Although the hair above Liberty's ear is a trifle soft, it can be considered a full strike for the issue. Aside from a few scattered surface ticks on each side, the obverse and reverse are pristine. The offering of Morgan dollars in the present sale includes two different examples of this date certified MS66, the other piece graded by NGC. This is remarkable as we have only offered one example at this grade level in the last 13 years, and that coin was certified by ANACS. Population: 2 in 66, 0 finer (7/06).
