Lot Description
1893-O $1 MS61 NGC. The 1893-O Morgan dollar is a challenging issue in mint condition because so many survivors are peppered with bagmarks. This factor severely limits certified examples grading above MS63. This MS61 coin has far fewer and less severe marks than would be expected for the grade designation. Also, the strike is better than usually seen, including decent detail in the centers. The luster, however, is satiny and contrasted against the bright semiprooflike finish seen in the fields. All in all, this is a nice coin for the issue and the MS61 grade.
