    1990 Silver Eagle, MS70
    The Sole Finest at PCGS
    Registry Set Essential

    1990 $1 Silver Eagle MS70 PCGS. A small decline in the price of silver in 1990 likely contributed to the slight increase over the previous two years in Silver Eagle purchases from the Mint. Proof sales also increased. The regular bullion-issue 1990 Silver eagle had a mintage of more than 5.8 million coins, and thousands are known in near-perfect MS69. Remarkably, however, only a single example has garnered the coveted MS70 grade at PCGS (11/15). That paramount Registry coin is offered in this lot. The strike is razor-sharp throughout, and the frosty, perfectly preserved surfaces are devoid of toning. The Silver Eagle series is one of the most heavily collected in modern issues, but Registry Set collectors will find many dates, including the 1990, where the acquisition of a finest-known example is almost impossible. We anticipate keen interest in this important offering.(Registry values: N991) (NGC ID# 26JC, PCGS# 9836)
