    Unsurpassable 1934-S Peace Dollar in Mint State 66

    1934-S $1 MS66 PCGS. The scarcity of the 1934-S in Mint State can be laid at the doorstep of one thing: widespread circulation in the years immediately following production. Few of the Silver Dollars struck in the San Francisco Mint in 1934 were kept from entering the channels of commerce, although collectors and dealers alike did not seem to realize this fact until several decades later. Today, the appearance of any Mint State '34-S Peace Dollar is an important occasion for both the auctioneer and their bidders. A premium quality Gem is a coin of utmost rarity and desirability, this despite the fact that we also sold an MS66 PCGS representative as lot 8367 in our recent January 2003 FUN Signature Sale. Whereas that coin was brilliant, the present example is moderately toned in lilac-gray hues. The color is speckled in a few areas--an attribute that does not inhibit appreciation of the full, frosty mint luster and overall sharp striking detail. There is not a single distracting abrasion, another feature that would make this coin a lovely and important addition to a PCGS Registry Set. Population: 15 in 66, 0 finer (10/02). (NGC ID# 257Z, PCGS# 7377)
