Lot Description
1889-S $1 MS66 NGC. Flashy silver luster is the calling card of this high-end Premium Gem Morgan. A brilliant and reflective coin, only tiny marks pay an infrequent visit to its surfaces, and none are bothersome. David Bowers tells the story in his Encyclopedia of how this issue was a great rarity at the turn of the century. It was once considered the rarest of all Morgan dollars, but Treasury and hoard releases changed all that. Pristine examples such as this coin remain rare. Just one coin is certified numerically higher by PCGS and NGC combined (3/14). From the M L Moser Collection, #1 NGC Morgan Dollar Registry Set.
