An often overlooked strike and condition rarity in the S-mint Peace dollar series, the 1922-S is an important find even in properly graded MS-65. The present lot features a premium Gem in NGC MS-66, a coin with overall smooth surfaces and none but a few widely scattered abrasions. Above average in strike, especially in the center of the reverse, that side of the coin also reveals myriad interesting die polish lines (as made) in the fields. (The latter feature is seen quite often on examples of this issue.) Satiny, brilliant and tied for finest certified for the issue at the major grading services.
