Lot Description
1892-S $1 AU55 PCGS. Choice AU is an excellent alternative for a Morgan dollar specialist attempting to obtain an 1892-S for one's collection. This is because finer examples are very difficult to acquire, especially in mint condition. In this regard, Bowers (2007) writes: "Most collectors will opt for an inexpensive VF or affordable XF, the 1892-S often being one of the few Morgan dollars in a set that is not Mint State." Whispers of soft gold-tan color reside on both sides of this example, each of which retains luster in the recessed areas. The design elements are well-defined, including the hair over Liberty's ear and the eagle's breast feathers that exhibit partial detail. A few light circulation marks are insignificant.
