    1896-S Dollar, Frosty MS65
    Seldom Offered This Fine

    1896-S $1 MS65 PCGS. The 1896-S is a better date in Uncirculated condition, and at the Gem level it is scarce. Finer pieces are rare. This example is frosty and lustrous, showing lilac-gold toning over otherwise brilliant surfaces. A few light grazes on Liberty's cheek are not bothersome. As usual for this issue, moderately strike weakness is noted on the eagle's breast and the hair above Liberty's ear. Population: 80 in 65 (6 in 65+), 5 finer; 1 in 65 Prooflike, 1 finer (6/20).(Registry values: P7, N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2564, PCGS# 7244)

    Weight: 26.73 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
