Lot Description
1893-S $1 AU58 NGC. If the proof 1895 is the king of the Morgan Dollar series, then the low mintage 1893-S is the prince -- equally as desirable and always in demand. The desirability of this issue is such that most collectors have to settle for low grade and/or impaired specimens. For the advanced specialist, however, we are proud to offer the present Choice AU representative. A wonderfully original example, both sides are toned in olive-gold and sunset-red shades. This color appears in a somewhat mottled fashion and is fully original gained from years of storage. While the surfaces display their fair share of abrasions, we stress that the number of distractions are minimal for a circulated silver coin of this size. Sharply defined overall with light wear that is only really evident on the hair over the ear and on the eagle's breast.
