Lot Description
1898-S $1 MS65 Deep Mirror Prooflike PCGS. The 1898-S Morgan dollar is not a rarity in Gem condition, and Prooflike examples can be found but are usually of the middling-contrast sort. A Gem Deep Mirror Prooflike, on the other hand, with true profound contrast such as the present PCGS-certified example, is a major rarity. This coin is one of only seven submissions in MS65 DMPL that PCGS has seen, and there are none finer at either NGC or PCGS (3/12). This silver-white example is completely untoned, with looking-glass mirrors and extreme contrast front and back. A loupe shows only a few tiny field marks in concert with the grade. Unimprovable quality for the DMPL Morgan aficionados.
