1888-S $20 Liberty. PCGS graded MS-64. Lovely golden toning on both sides. A nice looking, low-population coin. San Francisco mint twenties struck in the 1900s are easy to find; those from the 1890s, while less common, can be located without too much effort, but among the scarcest in Mint State grade are the elusive dates in the 1880s, the era of Tammany Hall politics and rapid expansion in the mighty railroads, steel mills, textile factories, oil cartels and other banking and industrial centers of 19th century America. This handsome 1888-S has what it takes to meet or exceed the stiff grading standards for MS64 quality: booming luster, vibrant color, uncleaned originality, and sharp devices sure to impact the viewer or next owner of this piece. It is with an exalted frame of mind that we direct your attention to it in the hopes of receiving your bid. Pop 41; none finer at PCGS (PCGS # 9009) .
Estimated Value $7,000 - 8,000.

Realized $8,050
