Lot Description
1921-S $1 MS64 Prooflike NGC. The otherwise common 1921-S is infrequently offered with a Prooflike finish. In his book Silver Dollars and Trade Dollars of the United States: A Complete Encyclopedia, Q. David Bowers states: "Semi-prooflike 1921-S dollars are occasionally seen, but with far less frequency than their Denver or Philadelphia counterparts. Full prooflike pieces are great rarities; possibly fewer than a dozen pieces exist." The prooflike fields on this representative establish a mild contrast with the motifs, and speckled lavender and gold color dot each side. Generally well impressed, save for weakness in the hair above and below Liberty's ear, and a touch of minor softness on the eagle's breast and legs. Some minute contact marks on Liberty's cheek and the eagle's breast limit the grade. Population: 5 in 64, 1 finer (10/04).
