The obverse of this lustrous and frosty Morgan dollar is alive with bright gunmetal-blue iridescence, while the reverse enjoys an expanse of similar blue toning mingled with soft, muted rose. The lofty mintage of 10.7 million pieces has little bearing on its value in Mint State grades. Most of the mintage saw heavy commercial duty in the New Orleans area, with the end result a date that presents a formidable collecting challenge at MS-63 or finer. This lovely 1886-O Morgan dollar will be just right for a collection at this grade level.
