Tied for Finest Certified, MS62
This nearly flawless Mint State example has full satin luster beneath delicate ivory, gold, and iridescent toning. The surfaces have a few wispy hairlines and minuscule marks, fewer than normally associated with the grade. Perhaps just a trace of cabinet friction limits the numerical assessment of this lovely piece.
In his Silver Dollar Encyclopedia, Dave Bowers records a single Mint State example from the Bareford Collection, followed by two AU58 coins, two AU55 pieces, and two AU50 examples. This example appears different than any of those that Bowers listed in his reference. Currently, the present coin shares the honor of finest certified with one other example at PCGS.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 24XA, PCGS# 6893)
