    1888 Gold Dollar, MS68
    Fully Struck and Pristine

    1888 G$1 MS68 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The penultimate gold dollar date had a business mintage of only 15,101 pieces. Many were saved, since the denomination was a novelty in commerce by the end of its run. Others were converted into love tokens by enterprising jewelers. The PCGS Population indicates examples are available in MS62 through MS66 grades. MS67 pieces are very scarce, and the issue becomes an important conditional rarity at the MS68 level. This intricately impressed example shows orange-red and lime-green accents across lustrous and immaculate surfaces. Population: 7 in 68 (1 in 68+), 0 finer (10/20).(Registry values: N1)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 25DT, PCGS# 7589)

    Weight: 1.67 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
