50C 1889 MS 65 PCGS Seated Liberty

Light grayish toning over satiny mint luster, with a dash of gold and russet toning on both sides. Sharply struck. Smooth, attractive surfaces. A gorgeous Gem quality example. Just 12,000 business strikes were coined, along with 711 Proofs. Just 19 examples have been PCGS certified at this level; nine finer. Much scarcer as a business strike, than as a Proof.
