A high grade example of the lowest business strike mintage of the Morgan dollar series, one of 100,000 struck. Many of these coins have been impaired over the years and are not "gradable" by the grading services, and the typical example is worn to around a VF grade. This steel gray AU-53 is a pleasant exception to the rule, and exhibits only some minor lines and tics from a short stay in circulation. We will likely see strong bidding activity when it is called to the podium.
