1889-S Liberty Head Eagle. MS-64 (PCGS). Frosty honey-orange surfaces are sharply struck throughout and uncommonly smooth in a survivor of this conditionally challenging issue. With a generous mintage of 425,400 pieces and a good rate of survival in European bank hoards, the 1889-S is one of the more readily obtainable 1880s eagles, at least in lower grades through MS-63. This premium quality near-Gem would make a fitting addition to an advanced gold cabinet.
