Legend Rare Coin Auctions Auction The Regency Auction 31 Mar-2019 Despite a mintage of 5 million, the 96-S is conditionally very RARE in GEM MS65 and excessively so any finer! Highly lustrous surfaces have a bold satiny gloss in the glowing fields. The cheek is frosty and the devices have a decent strike with just some minor, spotty weakness seen in some of the central details. Both sides show some olive, russet, gold, and tinges of deep purple that come out in a light and are mostly limited to the rims. The eye appeal is very cool for the date and grade. PCGS 76, NGC 14, CAC 7. This coin has a record as an NGC/CAC coin at $12,500 in May 2018. Keep in mind we sold a 65+ for nearly $22,000 in December 2016! This totally original coin is worthy of a great Morgan set and will see strong bidding! Cert. Number 35538590 PCGS # 7244
