    1887-O Dollar, MS66
    Sole Finest CAC-Approved Example

    1887-O $1 MS66 PCGS. CAC. Thousands upon thousands of 1887-O dollars are graded through MS64, but the issue's availability falls markedly in Gem condition, where it is elusive but obtainable. In MS66, this New Orleans date becomes a major condition rarity. Only 14 grading events are reported at PCGS, plus four at NGC with none higher. Those totals likely include some duplication. Importantly, this is the only Premium Gem that has been endorsed by CAC (11/18).

    Thin blushes of dusky gold color over what appear at first glance to be all-brilliant surfaces surely contribute the presence of a green sticker for originality and eye appeal. Both sides are obviously clean for the grade with vibrant satin mint luster and excellent detail for the facility.
    From The Dr. Joseph A. Murphy Collection. (Registry values: P5, N4719) (NGC ID# 2547, PCGS# 7176)
