Lot Description
1894 $1 MS64 NGC. Near-Gem is the highest grade most collectors can expect to acquire of the 1894 Morgan dollar as finer examples are highly elusive. Both sides display pleasing luster and are color-free save for occasional traces of reddish-gold at the right margins. The design elements are well-struck, including the hair over Liberty's ear and the eagle's breast feathers. The few minute marks are within the parameters of the grade designation, and an occasional grease stain does not unduly detract. NCG has seen only four pieces finer (1/14). From the collection of Donald E. Bently, sold for the benefit of the Bently Foundation.
