Item Description:
Widely heralded as one of the set-stopping dates in gem, the 1925-S is truly elusive in MS65. Just 15 coins graded each at PCGS and NGC with only 1 MS66, the strike usually holds this date back. Not so for this coin. This example is BY FAR the nicest we've ever seen for the date and we simply cannot imagine holding out for a better specimen. The color with knock your socks off. Rich blue in the centers with a little bit of teal and bright gold on the rims. A monster.
