Lot Description
1895-S $1 MS63 NGC (MS65 Paramount). Ex: Redfield Collection. One of the semikey dates to come out of the Redfield Hoard, which is unusual because the eccentric LaVere Redfield knew a better date silver dollar when he saw one and probably would have taken a profit if there was one to be made. More likely, this coin came to him not in a full bag of the date, but in a mixed bunch of dollars he picked up -- possibly at face value. This is a lustrous, Select Uncirculated Morgan, sharply struck with brilliant, silver-white luster and only a bit of golden toning near the rims. A few light, scattered abrasions are distributed on the coin. From the Collection of Donald E. Bently, sold for the benefit of the Bently Foundation.
