Well, I have been trying & trying and I think I have finely found the unicorn I have been searching/hoping for. Just got this back from grading. Its a 1981-P Susan Anthony Dollar $1 graded NGC "MS65 PL" with the "Proof Like" distinction. I looked in the NCS census, nothing exists. I looked on HA.com, nothing exists, PCGS, Worthpoint.com, everywhere. I cannot find one 1981 S.A. graded with the "PL" distinction. There are of course a handful of the 1999's, but I cannot find any record of one from the 1979-81. I am pretty jubilated to get a PL for this coin.

Let me know what you think.

I can't recall ever having seen a PL '79-'81. 

Some of the '80-D's are close and some '81-S's are very shiny. 

 

Curiously there are a very few '79-P PL quarters.

Very nice purchase! I do believe that is the first graded by NGC from the early series. If you look, there are several graded by ANACS. This is mine, graded 65PL in a small white ANACS holder.

Thank You for showing the other example 'physics-fan3.14,' very nice coin indeed.! Very little scuffing on the high points of her face. And great field.! 

I will have to check out ANACS population reports.

Nice coin. 

It's not hard to find the '80-D with a truly spectacular PL reverse but the obverse is usually much more muted.

physics-fan coin appears to be early die state and as fully struck as you will find. May not be highest grade but IMO a finer known example.

Cool find!  Unfortunately I don’t think there will be any premium above that for the 1999 coins if that is what you’re looking for.  A 1999-D graded MS67 PL sold for $69.  You might get $50 for it.

I would pay at least $100 for one of the three known 1999-D NGC-67PL dollars, and expect to get between $150 and $225. This auction price was an outlier.
