Lot Description
1879-O $1 MS65 NGC. Gem examples of the 1879-O Morgan dollar are rare in absolute terms, and relatively compared to the numbers of the legions of collectors who seek them. The finest NGC has ever certified are eight numerically finer, seven in MS66, one in MS66+ (10/13). This piece is untoned and displays brilliant cartwheel luster with few marks of any consequence. The strike is far sharper than normal for an O-mint issue, perhaps a fortunate early strike from fresh dies with the correct die spacing.
