Lot Description
1879-O $1 MS66 PCGS. The 1879-O Morgan dollar is plentiful in Mint State grades through near-Gem, and even Gems can be located with a bit of patience and searching. MS66 examples are an important condition rarity, however. PCGS and NGC combined have certified only 20 pieces in this level of preservation and none finer. The fields on this Premium Gem display moderate prooflike tendencies, and actually yield mild contrast with the devices. The design elements are generally well struck and exhibit at least partial definition in the hair above Liberty's ear and the eagle's breast feathers. Both sides are essentially untoned and devoid of significant marks. Population: 13 in 66, 0 finer (11/11).
