Lot Description
1902-S $1 MS65 NGC. Surviving 1902-S Morgan dollars, from a mintage of 1.53 million pieces, are plentiful through MS64, but become scarcer at the Gem level. The numbers drop again significantly at the MS66 level. This Gem remains largely brilliant, with areas of light toning appearing primarily near the outer edges. The strike is sharp overall, with the centers revealing minor incompleteness. Only 9 examples have achieved higher numeric grades from NGC (2/14). From the Collection of Donald E. Bently, sold for the benefit of the Bently Foundation.
