The satiny and lustrous golden-gray surfaces exhibit lively peach and rose iridescence on the obverse, while the reverse is more sedate and tending toward sky-blue in a bold light source. This date's mintage of 300,000 pieces represents the lowest production run of any Morgan dollar issue from the New Orleans Mint. Choice for the grade with plenty of innate eye appeal.
