Pleasing gray-gold throughout with smooth wear on the high points and clean surfaces. This is the key date to the circulation strikes of the Morgan dollar series, with a modest mintage of 100,000 pieces and far fewer known today for collectors. A scarce coin that is always in strong collector demand as precious few are known in full Mint State, and those are considerably beyond the budget of most collectors. This handsome VF-35 coin certainly presents well and is destined to be a proud highlight in an advanced date and mint set.
