1889 G$1 MS66 NGC
Last of the gold dollar issues prepared for general circulation, the 1889 is a low mintage affair with just 28,950 business strikes produced. Many examples were saved, however, as the gold dollar had long since lost its popularity as a circulating denomination by the late 1880s. This fact, coupled with the high quality of manufacture and preservation for most survivors, makes the 1889 a perennial favorite among gold type collectors. The present Gem does not disappoint in this regard, being a fully struck, fully lustrous and smooth looking piece. Green-gold in color. (PCGS 7590)
