Lot Description
1891 $1 MS65 PCGS. Despite the large mintage of nearly 9 million coins -- the Sherman Silver Purchase Act of 1890 spurred the Mint to produce even-larger gluts of Morgan dollars -- the 1891 issue is seldom seen above the Gem grade; bagmarks are, expectedly, the usual culprit. This relatively unmarked, untoned Gem boasts frosty surfaces and a clean cheek on Liberty. A couple of small hits on the eagle are in context with the grade. PCGS has seen only three numerically finer pieces (1/14).
