Lot Description
1888-O $1 Doubled Die Obverse MS60 PCGS. VAM-4. A Top 100 Variety. The famous "Hot Lips" Guide Book variety with strong die doubling on Liberty's profile. This variety is relatively available in circulated grades but is a great rarity in Mint State. It is unknown above MS61. The present piece displays unbroken cartwheel luster and has light butter-gold toning at the margins. The centers are lightly impressed and the cheek and fields exhibit moderate marks commensurate with the grade. Population: 1 in 60, 2 finer (1/13).
