Light steel-gray surfaces are offset by slightly darker gray fields on this key date Morgan silver dollar. The mintage of 100,000 pieces found their way into circulation, with just a handful surviving in mint state, the balance most melted in later years. Survivors are scarce and always command a premium. There are a few minor rim bumps and scuffs and scratches here, but the diagnostics are clear and the date and mintmark unmistakable.
