Lot Description
1879-O $1 MS65 PCGS. CAC. The 1879-O Morgan dollar is plentiful through the near-Gem level of preservation, but the issue becomes scarce at the MS65 level. Indeed, MS65 is the highest grade that is likely to be encountered by collectors; only about 20 finer examples have been certified by PCGS and NGC combined, and a number of these are likely resubmitted coins. The Gem in this lot displays pleasing luster on silver-gray surfaces. Moreover, it is better struck than ordinarily seen. The centers, usually weak, exhibit a modicum of detail, and neither side reveals bagmarks, a major problem with this issue, yielding above-average eye appeal.
