Finer than the typical 1893-S Morgan Dollar that passes through our auctions, this conditionally rare survivor is only lightly worn over devices that still retain ample sharpness of strike. Both sides are brilliant with no sizeable or otherwise individually distracting abrasions. On the other hand, accuracy does compel us to mention scattered hairlines and a somewhat glossy texture to the surfaces. The rarest business strike Morgan Dollar, the 1893-S is elusive in all grades and usually offered no finer than VF.
