Common in circulated grades, the 1884-S Morgan dollar becomes scarce in Mint State, and cost prohibitive in even Select Uncirculated. This example offers bright cartwheel luster consistent with a Mint State coin, but displays just a touch of wear on the high points. Minor handling marks are seen throughout, none of which detract significantly, and with a good strike it is clear why this coin was rewarded with a CAC sticker.
