    Description

    NCI 1892-S Morgan dollar MS 64 Prooflike. The 1892-S is one of the "Big 5" keys to the Morgan dollar series, an illustrious club that includes the 1884-S, 1889-CC, 1892-S, 1893-S, and 1901-P. Its mintage of 1.2 million pieces provides plentiful examples in lower, circulated grades, but in mint state very few '92-S dollars have survived. Because of its rarity the '92-S, like other key dates in the series, has been extensively counterfeited. Before purchasing any uncirculated example of this date, the buyer would be well advised to have the coin authenticated. This piece was authenticated and graded by NCI on certificate number DWB-9094-001. The fields are prooflike and show an even degree of reflectivity from side to side. The strike is sharply defined in most areas, the only exception being a slight softness over the ear of Liberty. The surfaces show a light overlay of golden patina, but the coin mainly presents as brilliant. There are no marks of any consequence, the only mentionable defect being hairlines on each side from an ill-advised cleaning. Still, a very presentable and flashy example of this rare, key date Morgan issue. (PCGS# 1694892)
