1879-S Morgan Silver Dollar. MS-63 (PCGS). Here is a relatively common issue but one graced by spectacular obverse toning of deep jewel-like intensity while the reverse is bright white and lustrous. Notice the green and teal shades on the upper left which fade to equally intense fuchsia with a dusting of light yellow-gold on the right. Reasonably clean surfaces too, although a shallow toned over scratch is noted on Liberty's cheek. Certain to find many people who desire such a coin as few Morgan's show this degree of color and intensity in combination.
