This is an exciting coin. At the MS-64 level the 1886-O is a prime key among Morgan silver dollars and, indeed, among New Orleans dollars is a landmark. While this date and mint is very common in lower grades, at the present level it is indeed rare, especially in comparison to the thousands of specialists in the Morgan dollar series. Frosty surfaces. Pale gold, gray, and rose toning at the centers deepens to vivid orange-gold at the rims. If this variety is on your want list, your search can end right here.
