1906-D. PCGS graded MS-65 PQ. CAC Approved. Well struck with light golden toning. The present example represents the first year issue at Denver Mint. The coin boasts a bold strike around the peripheries, so that all stars show full central details. The date is sharp, while the beaded hair cords that bind Liberty's bun are well detailed. Light softness is seen all too often on the tresses just above Liberty's forehead but in this instance the design is complete. Her cheek in particular, as well as the fields in general, are remarkably free of disturbance. Luster booms. On the reverse, a few light ticks in the fields are consistent with the MS65 grade. Boldness everywhere including the eagle's claws and fletchings. Again, both sides sport exuberant luster over reddish-gold, beautiful surfaces. This coin presents not only real value, it also offers superior surfaces that are as enticing as the coin is desirable for its Denver mintmark. Pop 41; 4 finer, 1 in 65+, 2 in 66, 1 in 67 (PCGS # 8414) .
Estimated Value $2,500 - 2,600.

Realized $4,140
