Lot Description
1894-O $1 MS64+ PCGS. CAC. PCGS has graded a mere 10 examples of the 1894-O dollar in MS65 or better (4/12), making this MS64+ coin an excellent compromise between quality and price. While the strike through the centers is typically soft, this piece is remarkably smooth overall with more shallow luster grazes than marks of any depth. A long line to the left of the eagle's beak was perhaps the decider for a "mere" MS64+ grade. Bright and swirling luster is essentially silver with only the slightest suggestions of ivory and rose at certain angles to the light. The all-around eye appeal is excellent.
