Lot Description
1879 $1 MS67 PCGS. Production of silver dollars was front and center in 1879 with more than 25 million coins struck, including nearly 15 million at Philadelphia. Examples are plentiful in all grades up to Gem MS65, but Superb examples are seldom seen. Like many dates in the Morgan dollar series, large quantities of this issue have survived due to long-term Treasury storage, although most were released in the 1950s, prior to the massive distribution of silver dollars in the early 1960s. This piece is a sharply struck Superb Gem with frosty silver luster and full mint brilliance. There is no evidence of toning on either side. Population: 1 in 67, 0 finer (2/07). From The Jackson Hole Collection.
