Lot Description
1893-O $1 MS64 NGC. Ex: Richmond Collection. The 1893-O has the lowest production of any New Orleans issue, just two thirds that of the more coveted 1895-O. The present piece is a brilliant and lustrous near-Gem, high-end for the grade despite a pair of tiny ticks near the cheekbone. This strike is incompletely brought up in the centers, typical for a New Orleans silver dollar from the era. Although elusive in any grade, the 1893-O is a rarity above the MS63 level. NGC has only certified 29 pieces as MS64, counting 4 Prooflike pieces, with a mere four coins in Gem or better condition.
