1898-S $20 Liberty NGC MS63 Prooflike



1898-S $20 Liberty NGC MS63 Prooflike. No doubt, this coin is a “cut above the rest.” While the 1898-S double eagle issue normally comes flashy, to locate Prooflike issues is a real challenge. As of this writing, NGC has certified 22,910 coins in all grades, but a mere 112 with any kind of Prooflike designation – and only 18 coins in the Choice Mint State 63 grade with one (1) finer! We also note the last auction appearance for a NGC MS63PL coin occurred five years ago, in 2012, and brought $3,290. The catalog description then (10/12) indicated that 14 were certified by NGC  (in 63) with 1 finer. Yes, this is a coin for the connoisseur!
