Lot Description
1896-S $1 MS64 PCGS. Near-Gem is probably the finest grade to be encountered by most collectors, as the 1896-S is typically weakly struck with shallow luster and highly bagmarked. These factors confine most survivors to MS64 and below. Both sides of this offering display bright luster and the occasional splash of light gold color. Roller marks in the centers impede somewhat the detail in the hair over Liberty's ear and the eagle's breast feathers. A few minute marks and grazes prevent Gem status. From The Wheeler Family Collection.
