Lot Description
1879-O $1 MS65 NGC. Although quantities of 1879-O Morgan dollars emerged from Treasury Department holdings in the early 1960s, this issue was not represented to the same degree as such common O-mint issues as the 1883-O, 1884-O, 1885-O, 1898-O, 1903-O, and 1904-O. Especially elusive as a Gem, the 1879-O is also a desirable issue as the first silver dollar produced at the Louisiana branch mint since the 1860-O Seated dollar. We cannot criticize either the bold striking quality or carefully preserved surfaces that grace both sides of this beautifully frosted example. The completely untoned surfaces exhibit a brilliant snow-white appearance overall. Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 2/2006), lot 1796. From The James Rohleder Collection.
