Lot Description
1928-S $1 MS65 PCGS. David Bowers (1993) writes that: "Many bags of 1928-S dollars came on the market in the late 1930s and early 1940s. More bags were released in 1949 and 1950 ... . There was little numismatic interest in them, however, as Peace dollars were not a popular series and, in any event, the market was in a slump." Dappled olive-green patination runs over the obverse of this Gem specimen, while the reverse is essentially color free. The surfaces are somewhat satiny, and display pleasing luster. While most examples of this date are poorly struck, this piece exhibits generally well defined design features, including in the usually weak center areas. A few minute reverse marks do not subtract from the coin's appeal. Population: 46 in 65, 1 finer (1/12).
