It is also, as of this post, one of the available prize options in my monthly giveaway.
Peru: 1900-JF silver dinero, 1900/898 overdate, PCGS MS64+
Except this is a 1903/803. It looks more like an 893 to me.
Here is a link to the overdates in the series.
Going to take me about a week or two just to 2x2 all of them (hundreds of coins).
The original owner put together a fine, fine collection. I consider it an honor just to get to handle them.
Will do my best to get photos of some of my favorites.
This is the worst one that is in a slab, the last I knew. I wish I could upgrade it, but I have not been able to do that. NGC graded it VG-8.
Overall there are about 50 known. At one time it was thought that there were only 7 or 8, and all of them were high grade. The reason was that only advanced, wealthy collectors had checked their coins. Once others looked at their pieces, more were found. It's still a tough coin.
The overdate is not that sharp.
The way to spot it is on the reverse. If the berry is under the "E" in "UNITED," it's the over date.
If it is under the "D" in "UNITED," it's the normal date.
