A key date in any grade and one of the most sought after issues in this entire series of Morgan silver dollars. This coin is a lock Gem, with satiny white surfaces, abundant luster and a sharp strike. The fields and cheek on Liberty are remarkably clean, and show minimal scuffs or disturbances, plus the luster is full and complete. While the total certified by PCGS at 94 pieces may seem like a lot, it pales in comparison to the number of collectors seeking a Gem example for their date or Carson City collections. To find one so appealing and fully brilliant is quite a treasure that a student of this series will always appreciate and cherish.
