Lot Description
1894 $1 MS64 PCGS. Perhaps overshadowed by the silver dollar "royalty" surrounding it (the 1893-S dollar and the 1895 proof-only issue), the 1894 date is a stopper, too, in high Mint State grades. Only 110,000 pieces were minted, and few Gem or finer coins exist. This rare Philadelphia issue is seldom seen finer than the present coin, and for many specialists a near-Gem coin is a smart selection with a massive price jump to full Gem. Frost-white surfaces show only minor imperfections on this untoned MS64 example, and a bold strike is on display. Only minor grazes and a few tiny marks determine the assigned grade.
