Lot Description
1893-O $1 MS66 Prooflike PCGS. The 1893-O has the lowest mintage of all New Orleans dollars with only 300,000 pieces struck. After all the circulated, heavily bagmarked, and weakly struck coins are factored out of the number that remain, one realizes that this is a very challenging issue from the 1890s. Additionally, very few true prooflikes are known. This is a nicely mirrored coin that has even reflectivity on each side. The devices are also frosted with no obvious abrasions. Warm golden-brown toning turns slightly deeper in hue around the margins with a thin ring of blue just over the denticles. Population: 1 in 66, 0 finer (10/03).
