Owner's Comments

While colorfully toned examples of the 1889-P issue can be located, they are almost non-existent at the coveted MS66 level. We have owned some nice examples in the MS64-MS65 range, but this MS66 has had no peers among those we have studied. The fascinatingly toned MS65 in our duplicates set has such an interesting enough toning pattern that we had it in the main set for a while, but we have now restored the MS66 to its rightful place. From Mike DeFalco; previously out of a Heritage sale.
