Lot Description
1892-S $1 MS60 NGC. Collectors and aficionados of the series know that the prices for the 1892-S take a huge jump as the Mint State level is approached. Coins up through the higher circulated grades were fairly plentiful at one time, but the Treasury releases of the 1960s revealed a dearth of true Mint State coins. As such, this is a coin high on the want lists of legions of collectors, a Mint State 1892-S with largely untoned original surfaces. Just the slightest blush of champagne patina is noted around the peripheries, a bit more obviously on the reverse. The luster is somewhat satiny. A few marks on Liberty's cheek are noted, including one that requires singular mention on the lower jaw. The strike is somewhat soft through the centers as well, but there is strictly no trace of rub on this important key-date coin. Census: 5 in 60, 42 finer (12/07).
