Lot Description
1888-O $1 Doubled Die Obverse AU58 PCGS. VAM-4. A Top 100 Variety. A wonderful example of the famous "Hot Lips" variety, listed on page 219 of the 2009 Guide Book. Liberty's lips and nose show prominent doubling. VAM-4 is scarce in all grades, and is rare in About Uncirculated and finer, with Uncirculated pieces virtually unobtainable. This lightly frosted specimen is minimally abraded, and shows only insignificant weakness on the hair and eagle's breast, as typically seen. A pleasing and better-grade representative of this popular variety.
