    1893-S Five Dollar, MS65
    A Major Condition Rarity

    1893-S $5 MS65 PCGS. This flashy Gem is tied for second finest certified for the date and mint at PCGS, with only two coins finer coin. While a common date in lower grades, the 1893-S becomes a major condition rarity at the Gem level. This lovely example displays an excellent strike strength on each side, with sharpness evident throughout. The surfaces are boldly lustrous with vibrant golden frost across each side. No mentionable abrasions are present, although a few tiny surface ticks are within the qualifications for the Gem grade. This highly attractive Gem is destined for the finest of collections.
