||1886-S $1 MS65 NGC. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. Despite its relatively low mintage of 750,000 pieces, the 1886-S can be found through near-Gem condition. Gems are scarce and higher-grade examples are quite rare. Golden-tan toning bathes the lustrous surfaces of this MS65 specimen and the strike is strong over most of the design elements, though the eagle's breast is a tad soft. NGC has seen fewer than 20 examples finer (9/13). Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $15.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
