Lot Description
1895-S $1 MS65 PCGS. CAC. In his classic The Morgan and Peace Dollar Textbook, Wayne Miller notes that the 1895-S date often comes heavily abraded, stating that "this date is readily obtainable in bagmarked BU condition." On the other hand, he also acknowledges that "specimens with minimum abrasions are available, and are of course very popular." This PCGS-certified Gem should find favor with plenty of collectors who know the date is a condition rarity so fine. Flashy, partly reflective fields are immensely lustrous under a light layer of whitish toning that turns to gold at the margins. Well struck overall with only minor softness on the hair over Liberty's ear. Population: 30 in 65, 2 finer (11/10). From The Shrike Set - The Karschner Collection of Morgan Dollars.
