||1889 G$1 Doubled Die Reverse MS65 NGC. This variety, recognized by NGC under their VarietyPlus service as VP-001, exhibits bold die doubling on the reverse bow and the lower portion of the wreath. The certified population of this variety is quite sparse, with NGC having attributed only 24 pieces in all grades. Of these, only five are in MS65, and just 11 are numerically finer (8/14). This example showcases shimmering luster that illuminates the nearly flawless surfaces with frosty golden radiance. The strike is remarkably bold, and the die doubling is plain, even to the unaided eye. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
