||1888 G$1 MS63 NGC. CAC. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. This was a widely saved issue at the time of its release, and Bowers estimates the surviving Mint State population at 1,800 to 2,200 coins. Many of these were struck with Prooflike surfaces, and some Prooflike coins have been mistakenly identified as proofs. This is a frosty, carefully preserved, well-defined example with blemish-free surfaces and lovely light coloration. Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $8.50; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
