Lot Description
1893 $1 MS65 PCGS. After a decent start of 200,000 pieces in January, Philadelphia's striking of Morgan dollars in 1893 fell to 150,000 coins in February and none in March. A small striking of 28,000 examples in April took place before coinage was suspended for the year. Today the 1893 Morgan dollar is conditionally rare in better-than-Gem condition, as PCGS has certified only three such pieces (4/14). This attractive MS65 example is lightly patinated with pale green-gold elements on shining silver surfaces. Ex: Sacramento ANA Signature (Heritage, 3/2011), lot 4066.
