Lot Description
1898-S $1 MS65 Deep Mirror Prooflike PCGS. Uncommonly well mirrored for the for this lesser seen, late-date issue. In fact, a DMPL 1898-S in any Mint State grade can be considered a scarcity. The strike is exceptionally bold and a thin veil of milky patina on the obverse goes almost unnoticed. Surface marks are both sparse and light, the most noticeable being found on either side of the portrait. To say that this is an important opportunity for the Deep Mirror Prooflike specialist is underscored by the fact that we have offered just three other Gem DMPL examples over the past decade. Population: 7 in 65, 0 finer (11/05).
