Lot Description
Among Morgan dollars the 1883-S at the MS-64 level, never mind the addition of the CAC sticker, is a great object of desire. The present coin is truly beautiful and stands high among examples at that grade level. Here is an opportunity. The soft lilac-gray surfaces of this lustrous Morgan dollar are adorned with halos of rich neon-blue iridescence at the rims. A classic date that becomes a <em>Condition Rarity </em>in MS-64 or finer despite&nbsp;its mintage of 6.25 million pieces -- the vast majority of the production run saw moderate to heavy commercial use in the San Francisco area, with the end result that examples are routinely available today&nbsp;in AU and the lower range of Mint State, but&nbsp;go above&nbsp;that level and you have a notable semi-key date.&nbsp;Choice for the grade with a sharp strike and some prooflike reflectivity in the fields.
