Lot Description
1921-S $1 MS65 Prooflike NGC. The Morgan dollars of 1921 are a historical accident, produced 17 years after the previous last-of-their-kind only because the Peace dollar was not ready. (History repeated with the Susan B. Anthony dollars of 1999 -- and on a nearly identical timeframe, no less.) Production values were poor, and for the San Francisco issue, there are only 26 Prooflike coins (including one Deep Prooflike) in the combined certified population, with this MS65 example alone at the top of the heap (11/11). While contrast is minimal, the reflectivity of the fields is patently obvious, even through a layer of light green-gold and blue patina. One of the most satisfying 1921-dated Morgan dollars in existence.
