Lot Description
1884 $1 MS67+ PCGS. CAC. The 1884 Morgan dollar is a common issue from a generous mintage that exceeded 14 million coins throughout the year. Few survivors, however, achieve the MS67 level or higher. The present high-end Superb Gem yields intense luster and shows well-struck design features, including partial definition in the hair over Liberty's ear and the eagle's breast feathers. Swaths of medium-intensity yellow-gold and aqua-green visit the upper-right third of the obverse, ceding to soft grayish-lavender. The reverse is essentially brilliant save for soft russet at the rims. As expected, both sides have been well cared for. Population: 2 in 67+, 2 finer (8/13).
