Lot Description
1896-S $1 MS65 NGC. It seems likely that most of the 5 million 1896-S dollars that were struck were placed into circulation, as circulated examples are quite common and high grade Mint State coins are seldom encountered. This is a snow-white coin that displays sparkling mint luster. Well, but not fully struck, there are only the slightest abrasions present on either side. A lovely Gem example of this conditionally scarce issue. Population: 15 in 65, 4 finer (7/03).
