    1892-S Silver Dollar, MS61
    Important Mint State Rarity

    1892-S $1 MS61 NGC. While many collectors believe the 1889-CC is the scarcest Mint State Morgan dollar behind the 1893-S, the 1892-S easily claims that honor despite a mintage nearly three times that of the 1889-CC. In recent years, the 1892-S has stepped out of the '93-S shadow, and it is recognized as rare in all Uncirculated grades (and highly valued accordingly).

    This is a brilliant MS61 example, with bagmark-free surfaces and bright silver luster throughout the semireflective fields. The assigned grade accounts for scattered delicate hairlines, yet other marks are simply unseen on the boldly struck surfaces. We expect strong competition when this Mint State 1892-S is called. Census: 13 in 61, 29 finer (10/19).(Registry values: P8, N4719) (NGC ID# 255P, PCGS# 7218)

    Weight: 26.73 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
