Lot Description
1892-S $1 MS60 NGC. Third-party grading allows few examples of this rare date to qualify for the lowest Mint State category anymore, but this silver-gray coin made it with a combination of partial prooflikeness in the fields and relatively few abrasions across the surfaces. Charcoal-gray toning occupies the lower recesses of the devices, with hints of russet overtones. Many AU examples of this date exist that were promoted as Uncirculated coins years ago, a practice that was reigned in with assistance of the professional grading services. While this coin has somewhat subdued mint luster and a bit of softness in the central obverse strike, it displays an original, old-silver appeal many collectors find attractive. A few scattered abrasions, including a group of small contacts on Liberty's chin, are the only marks of note. Census: 8 in 60, 40 finer (3/14).
