Lot Description
1898 $1 MS67 PCGS. This Superb Gem is one of the finest examples known of this otherwise common date. While the 1898 is available in nearly any desired grade, that was not always the case. In the early and middle 20th century, it was considered scarce, as much of the original mintage was stored in Treasury vaults awaiting distribution in the early 1960s. Both sides are well-detailed and display frosty silver luster with exceptional eye appeal. The near-perfect surfaces show no evidence of toning on either side. Population: 55 in 67 (3 in 67+), 0 finer (12/13). Ex: Jackson Hole Collection, Dallas Signature (Heritage, 4/2007), lot 92, which realized $4,887.50.
