Lot Description
1898-O $1 MS67 Deep Mirror Prooflike PCGS. While a common coin in MS65 and lower grades, the 1898-O is rarely located in Superb condition. Additionally, it is very rare with deeply mirrored prooflike fields. When those two qualifiers are applied, the 1898-O is a condition rarity among late-date dollars. This is one of only two PCGS-certified MS67 DMPL (with one finer), NGC has only graded one MS67 DPL piece (7/06). This is an absolutely stunning coin. Essentially brilliant throughout, the surfaces are virtually perfect with no mentionable abrasions. The striking details are intricately detailed with needle-sharp definition over the ear of Liberty as well as on the eagle's breast. Noticeable cameo contrast is also apparent between the fields and devices.
