Deep-slate toning and smooth surfaces for the grade define this key-date Morgan dollar issue. While the 1895 is the King of the Morgan dollars, it is a Proof-only issue, and is not technically needed for a complete set; the 1893-S as a business strike, is the lowest mintage in the series at 100,000 pieces. Those that survive often come either in lower grade or with serious issues. This example is in a popular collector grade and will fit nicely in a high grade Morgan dollar set.
