Lot Description
1878-S $1 MS67 NGC. The 1878-S Morgan, sporting a mintage approaching 10 million pieces, is plentiful in Mint State through MS65. The population drops considerably in Premium Gem, but nice examples can still be located with relatively little trouble. NGC and PCGS have graded slightly more than 50 pieces in MS67 and one finer. The highly lustrous surfaces display deep cobalt-blue, lavender, and reddish-gold toning that clings to the margins. The design elements are well-defined, including the centers, and a few minute marks on Liberty's cheek do not detract. This coin yields great technical quality and aesthetic appeal. Census: 32 in 67 (4 in 67 S), 0 finer (10/13).
