Lot Description
1895-S $1 MS64+ PCGS. CAC. The 1895-S Morgan dollar seldom appears finer than MS63, although circulated examples are legion. Even most examples of the small issue of 400,000 coins that did not circulate show extensive bagmarks that remove them from consideration for the higher Mint State levels. This frosty, silver-white near-Gem is a pleasing exception, showing only two small nicks, one on the cheek and one on the chin, but otherwise Liberty's cheek is free of all but the smallest ticks. The eagle's breast is also relatively unmarked. A loupe reveals roller marks on the cheek that are undistracting. Population: 32 in 64+, 38 finer (12/13).
