Lot Description
1892 $1 MS65 Deep Mirror Prooflike PCGS. Both sides of this desirable DMPL dollar rarity exhibit sparkling, moderately reflective surfaces that are untoned save for a swath of milky silver-gray patina across the upper obverse periphery. The strike is just a few hair curls over Liberty's ear and breast feathers shy of complete, but still much above-average for the issue. What really sets this piece apart from the already limited quantities of deep mirror 1892 dollars is its phenomenal lack of abrasions. Just a couple of small reeding marks are noticed in front of Liberty's nose, while the balance of the fragile mirrors has escaped any meaningful signs of contact. Population: 5 in 65, 0 finer (11/05).
