Lot Description
1898-S $1 MS65 PCGS. Thought of as a common date during Treasury releases of the 1940s, 1950s, and early 1960s, collectors now know the 1898-S date is scarce in Gem condition and rare any finer. This example shows a layer of clear, orange-gold toning on the obverse with golden rims on the reverse over frosted silver surfaces. The strike is soft over Liberty's ear but sharp elsewhere. A pair of light reeding marks are seen on the obverse, but the remaining surfaces are nearly free of abrasions.
