Lot Description
1883 $1 MS68 NGC. The silver runup orchestrated by the Hunt Brothers in the 1970s did quite a bit to thin out the ranks of 1883 silver dollars (as well as other common dates), but the issue is still a favorite target of type collectors because of its availability. Those putting together an extremely high-grade set should pay particular attention to this coin because of its untoned, gleaming silver appeal. The surfaces display exceptional frosty brilliance -- fully struck for the issue, with only a couple of tiny marks preventing total perfection. No 1883 silver dollar is certified numerically finer by either service. Census: 4 in 68, 0 finer (3/14). From the M L Moser Collection, #1 NGC Morgan Dollar Registry Set.
