Lot Description
1893-O $1 MS64 Prooflike NGC. The 1893-O Morgan dollar naturally is an elusive issue, especially in Select Mint State and better, thanks to a low mintage of 300,000 pieces combined with extensive circulation patterns. Add in a Prooflike designation, and this MS64 example suddenly offers a way past one of the great "stopper" issues for collectors prizing that surface quality. Though this piece is low-contrast and softly struck on the hair over the ear, as usually seen, both sides have appreciable reflectivity, particularly the reverse. Gold and blue peripheral toning-dots are plainer on the obverse. Census: 4 in 64 Prooflike, 0 finer (11/13).
