Lot Description
1894-S $1 MS66 PCGS. The 1894-S is infrequently encountered in the better Mint State grades. About 130 or so coins of this issue in Full Gem have been certified by PCGS and NGC; Premium Gem and better specimens amount to just 16 coins. Only nine MS66 examples have appeared in major auctions within the last 15 years, along with one specimen that graded higher. The Premium Gem specimen offered in this lot displays dazzling luster overrun with occasional splashes of lavender, cobalt-blue, and golden-brown coloration. The design elements show excellent definition, though slight softness is noted in the hair over Liberty's ear. A few minor scuffs on Liberty's cheek and neck are all that preclude an even higher grade. Population: 8 in 66, 2 finer (10/05).
