    Description

    1897-S Twenty Dollar, Frosted MS64+
    Full Strike, Honey-Gold Hues

    1897-S $20 MS64+ PCGS. CAC. A trace of "vault grime" on Liberty's cheek may be an indication of this coin's travels to countries unknown during its possible absence from the care of collectors, although otherwise it is remarkably well-preserved. A few light abrasions are inconsequential even at this near-Gem grade with the Plus designation, while pervasive mint luster and an exceptionally deep strike are suggestive of an even finer grade level. Appropriately CAC endorsed and Choice in many regards. Population: 62 in 64+, 14 finer. CAC: 77 in 64, 2 finer (5/17).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 26CJ, PCGS# 9032)

    Weight: 33.44 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
