Lot Description
1898-O $1 MS66 Deep Mirror Prooflike NGC. For a late-date dollar that is so common as a non-prooflike, coins with the confirmed reflectivity as seen on this piece are very scarce. The few hundred Deep Prooflike coins that are known of the 1898-O top out at the MS64 level, with Gem and finer pieces quite elusive. When the combined population from both NGC and PCGS are taken into account, only 50 pieces have been graded MS66 Deep Prooflike with four finer (8/05). This is a well struck example that has a confirmed mirror-like effect in the fields. Each side is mostly unfazed by abrasions, certainly there are none worthy of individual note, and the margins show a light outline of russet toning around the otherwise brilliant surfaces.
