With just eight Superb Gem 1882 Morgan dollars known to NGC, an MS-66 graded example, as here, will be the only alternative for the legions of Registry Set Morgan dollar collectors. As such, we expect serious competition for this representative come auction day. However, this piece is not only technically satisfactory, but aesthetically appealing as well. Both sides display a softly frosted sheen of mint luster, and no mentionable distraction at this level of preservation. Boldly, if not sharply impressed throughout, this silver dollar will fit ably into nearly any accumulation of U.S. coinage.
