Lot Description
1884-S $1 MS63 NGC. This is one of the rare Morgan dollar issues -- moreso in relation to its demand (as opposed to absolute rarity), although its scarcity is undeniable. The issue is truly rare when located in attractive, brilliant-white condition with strong mint luster, such as this Select Uncirculated example. Only two mentionable abrasions interrupt smooth, unmarked surfaces, with a small reeding mark on Liberty's jawline and a minimal scrape above the eagle's head. A full strike is bold even on the eagle's breast (a problem spot for this issue), and the coin has a fresh-from-the-Mint, high-end appeal. Census: 46 in 63 (1 in 63+, 1 in 63 S), 15 finer (3/14). From the M L Moser Collection, #1 NGC Morgan Dollar Registry Set.
