Lot Description
1889-O $1 MS65+ PCGS. The 1889-O Morgan was struck in large quantities, approaching 12 million coins. Plentiful examples exist through near-Gem, but the certified population drops significantly at the Gem level. The two major services have graded about 225 specimens in MS65 and fewer than 20 finer (4/14). This high-end Gem displays lustrous silver-gray surfaces that are better struck than typically encountered. In particular, the hair above Liberty's ear and the eagle's breast feathers exhibit partial detail instead of the usual flatness. A few minute marks do not disturb.
