    Description

    1972 Type One Dollar, MS66
    Major Rarity in High Grade

    1972 $1 Type One MS66 PCGS. Ex: Sonoran Monsoon. This Type One dollar shows the Earth in low-relief with three distinct islands. Type One coins are more available than their scarce Type Two counterparts, but such a description hardly seems appropriate for examples as well-preserved as this Premium Gem. In fact, there are only four such submissions at the leading grading services, all in PCGS holders, with none finer (11/15). Glints of light golden patina appear over brilliant, frosty surfaces that display unimportant flecks and grazes. Worth a premium bid.
    From The Sonoran Monsoon Collection.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2587, PCGS# 87409)

    Weight: 22.68 grams

    Metal: 75% Copper, 25% Nickel (Over Copper Center)
