Lot Description
1898-S $1 MS65 Deep Mirror Prooflike PCGS. Compared to the often-flashy and well-produced 1897-S issue, the 1898-S Morgan dollars are more low-key, with luster described by Q. David Bowers as "subtle, even satiny." This pleasing piece runs counter to the issue's low survival rate of Gems and the infrequent appearance of mirrored coins. Both sides are minimally toned and amply reflective, and the sharply struck devices offer substantially above-average contrast despite light overall frost. Highly desirable in this state. Population: 7 in 65 Deep Mirror Prooflike, 0 finer (6/08). From the "A Gift of Undeserved Favor" Collection.
