Lot Description
1894 $1 MS63 NGC. This issue continues to trend "up" with collectors, particularly in mid-to-higher Mint State grades. A low mintage of just 110,000 pieces is the main attraction, as is the MS63 grade, which is the final plateau before the price takes a giant step upward. This Select Uncirculated example shows sharply lustrous, frosty surfaces, with a bold strike that displays stronger breast feathers on the eagle than most examples. Sharp detail on the obverse shows only minor weakness above Liberty's ear. From the Collection of Donald E. Bently, sold for the benefit of the Bently Foundation.
