Lot Description
1896 $1 MS67 NGC. The 1896-P may be a common date, but there is nothing "common" about this example. Basically untoned, except for faint golden peripheral color, with thick, satiny luster and a creamy-smooth portrait of Liberty that boasts a pristine cheek. Trivial field marks are noted on the obverse, but the overall eye appeal of this Superb Gem dollar is simply outstanding. Census: 54 in 67 (1 in 67+), 0 finer (7/12). Ex: Summer FUN (Heritage, 7/2007), lot 1656.
