Lot Description
1893-S $1 XF45 PCGS. CAC. In A Buyer's Guide to Silver Dollars and Trade Dollars of the United States, Q. David Bowers says of the 1893-S issue: "Specimens are highly desired in all grades, from well worn on up. ... The 1893-S is not an 'impossible' rarity is because thousands of worn specimens survive." Even those thousands of coins, though, are no match for the unceasing demand for the issue. This coin's strong suit is its originality. Each side has medium-gray toning. Only slight friction is noted, and there are no obvious abrasions on either side.
