Lot Description
1882-O $1 MS65 Deep Mirror Prooflike NGC. The 1882-O (6 million coins produced) is not a great rarity in Mint State, nor is it particularly elusive with a Deep Mirror Prooflike finish. Nevertheless, most of the 3,000-6,000 DMPL pieces believed extant grade no finer than MS64. This coin appears to be the first '82-O Dollar certified MS65 Deep Mirror Prooflike by NGC, and it is matched in grade by just 16 pieces at PCGS (7/02). The devices are suitably well frosted for the issue with crisp striking definition throughout. The fields shimmer with deep, glassy reflectivity, and neither side reveals either mentionable toning or outwardly distracting abrasions. A few tiny ticks are seen here and there, however, and there are also some small, well scattered planchet voids (as produced) in the fields. An important find for the advanced Morgan Dollar collector.
