1973-S $1 Silver, DCAM PR69DCAM Certification #18242751, PCGS #97431

Owner's Comments

This is the "Snake Crater" DIVA. Perhaps only 4 are known to exist. The snake-like "extra" appears to be slithering out of the edge of the big crater under the eagle. "Gandyjai's DIVA PR Set" on the label. DDR seen in the craters, leaves, FG, and LAR. Minor DDO seen in 73.

Expert Comments

Jaime Hernandez

The 1973-S Silver Eisenhower Dollar came in very nice quality ranging from about PR67-69 Deep Cameo condition. Coin in perfect PR70 Deep Cameo condition are very scarce and any example in this condition will command a very strong premium.
