Lot Description
1893-S $1 -- Improperly Cleaned -- NGC Details. XF. Other than the 1895, a proof-only issue of 880 pieces, the 1893-S is the primary key issue in the Morgan dollar series. It has the smallest business strike mintage of all, at 100,000 coins, and examples are avidly pursued at all grade levels. This example has a somewhat bright appearance from improper cleaning, but it boasts substantial design details that at least match the XF Details assessment by NGC. Wispy hairlines and a few minor abrasions are noted on each side, and the surfaces remain essentially untoned. From the Collection of Donald E. Bently, sold for the benefit of the Bently Foundation.
