Lot Description
1895-S $1 MS63 NGC. Surviving Mint State examples of this low-mintage issue (400,000 coins produced) are often plagued by heavy bagmarks and grade near the lower end of the Mint State scale. Bowers writes that "A piece MS63 or finer, with minimum bagmarks, is a numismatic find and is very special." This lightly abraded representative's eye appeal is balanced by lovely semiprooflike mirroring in the fields, a characteristic not often seen on this issue. The strike is pleasing, and a light golden peripheral ring surrounds otherwise fully brilliant luster.
