Lot Description
1892 $1 MS64 Deep Mirror Prooflike PCGS. This is not only a near-Gem of this elusive issue, but with Deep Mirror Prooflike surfaces the present coin is immeasurably rarer. Bowers wrote of the 1892, "Really choice MS-64 and gem MS-65 or finer coins are very hard to find. ... Semi-prooflike coins are seen on occasion, but gems are very elusive and sharply struck DMPLs are rarer yet." This piece is devoid of color, which should please the many legions of Morgan aficionados who prefer untoned coins, especially for Deep Mirror Prooflike status. The strike and field-device contrast are equally sharp, and this coin appears remarkably high-end for the grade. Population: 25 in 64 Deep Mirror Prooflike, 5 finer (9/09).
