Lot Description
1901 $1 MS62 NGC. The 1901 has a mintage of 6,962,813 pieces, and the 1899 has a mintage of 330,000 pieces. Despite the 20x difference in production, the 1899 is relatively plentiful in Uncirculated grades, while the 1901 is rare in Mint State. The present example displays unbroken cartwheel sheen and has surprisingly few marks for the MS62 level. The peach-gold toning is light throughout except on the lower reverse, where it is deeper and joined by glimpses of cobalt-blue.
