$1 2008 SMS John Quincy Adams Missing Edge Lettering NGC MS66

Description
  • The US Mint began the Presidential Dollar series in 2007
  • The American presidents are honored after their passing in the order that they served
  • From 2005 to 2010, coins sold in Special Mint Sets had distinctive satin finishes
  • This 2008 John Quincy Adams Presidential Dollar was part of the Special Mint Set
  • Presidential Dollars struck from 2007 to 2010 have a lettered edge reading “• 2007 P E PLURIBUS UNUM • IN GOD WE TRUST”
  • As the lettered edge is applied in a separate step from the initial striking, some coins are missing this element
  • Missing Edge Lettering coins are generally much rarer than their standard counterparts
  • Absolute Rarity: Only a minuscule 745,464 Special Mint Sets were struck
  • Absolute Rarity describes a coin with a low mintage where any grade is difficult to find
  • Condition Rarity: Only 120 Missing Edge Lettering examples graded in Gem Mint State 66 condition with just 180 finer known from NGC
  • Condition Rarity occurs when few coins survive in high grades making them difficult to find
