A boldly lustrous Gem with a sharp strike and exceptional eye appeal. This date's mintage of 228,000 pieces represents the lowest production figure for any Morgan dollar from the Carson City Mint. The availability of the date today is due to the fact that the vast majority of the mintage was never distributed, but stored by the Treasury Department only to emerge into the light of day in 1964, much to the delight of numismatists.
