Lot Description
1898-S $1 MS64 Deep Mirror Prooflike NGC. The 1898-S, with a mintage exceeding 4 million pieces, is one of the more common Morgan dollars, though Deep Mirror Prooflike specimens are much more challenging. This near-Gem displays pleasing field-device contrast. Wisps of light tan color make occasional visits, particularly on the reverse, and an attentive strike leaves sharp definition on the design elements. Some light obverse marks preclude full Gem classification. Census: 16 in 64 Deep Mirror Prooflike, 1 finer (3/12).
