Lot Description
1879 $1 MS67 NGC. A fully brilliant and boldly detailed Superb Gem, this 1879 Morgan is tied for the finest that has ever been certified. PCGS has graded just one MS67, while NGC has certified five submissions at this grade level, probably representing fewer coins (1/09). The connoisseur will note the exceptional strike that is far finer than usually encountered. The satiny luster and excellent eye appeal add to its overall aesthetic beauty. The present piece is only the third Superb Gem 1879 Morgan that we have offered in any of our auctions. We offered a PCGS-certified piece in April 2007, and another PCGS-certified example in January 2001. This is a remarkable opportunity for the advanced Morgan dollar specialist to acquire an incredible 1879 dollar.
