    Bright, Near-Mint 1893-S Silver Dollar

    1893-S $1 AU58 PCGS. The '93-S has a mintage of 100,000 coins. In his book Silver Dollars and Trade Dollars of the U.S., David Bowers mentions that tens of thousands of 1893-S Dollars may have been melted under terms of the 1918 Pittman Act (in which more than 259 million Silver Dollars were melted for resale to England at $1 per fine ounce). Bowers estimates that between 4,000 and 8,000 '93-S Dollars are extant in the grade range from VF20 to AU58. The AU58 specimen we offer here has bright silver-gray surfaces with abundant luster remaining overall, and a completely untoned appearance. The design elements are nicely defined, though touches of weakness show in the hair above Liberty's hair, and on the eagle's breast and leg feathers. A few small abrasions are evident, particularly on Liberty's face. This very desirable key date coin will make a fine addition to a high-grade circulated collection of Morgan Dollars. Population: 12 in 58, 28 finer (12/04).(#7226) (Registry values: P10, N4719) (NGC ID# 255U, PCGS# 7226)
