Lot Description
1896-S $1 MS65 PCGS. With a mintage of precisely 5 million pieces, the 1896-S is available for a price in lesser Mint State grades but is genuinely scarce as a Gem and extremely rare any finer; PCGS has certified only four examples as MS66 or better (8/13). This MS65 coin has a light golden cast overall with strong silver underlying luster. A few small depressed areas on the obverse are as-struck, and the pattern of marks on each side is consistent with the Gem designation. Generally well-defined with only a touch of the usual softness noted at the hair over Liberty's ear.
