Lot Description
1896 $1 MS67 NGC. While considered a common date in the lower grades of Uncirculated, up to and including MS65, the 1896 is an issue we just do not recall having handled recently in Superb condition. Relatively few have been so graded by NGC, and none are certified any finer by either of the major services. The surfaces are brilliant, and the mint luster is as thick and frosted as one would expect for an MS67. There are no mentionable abrasions on either side and the striking details are sharply defined throughout. Census: 52 in 67, 0 finer (3/12). Ex: FUN Signature (Heritage, 1/2004), lot 9031; Atlanta Signature (Heritage, 4/2006), lot 1157.
