Lot Description
1894 $1 MS61 NGC. Uncirculated examples of this low-mintage issue are always welcome, and generate plenty of interest among serious Morgan dollar collectors when they appear. Only 110,000 business strikes were produced, a low total that rivals that of the famous 1893-S key issue. The 1894 has a higher survival rate than its San Francisco mint predecessor, but retains a highly respected position in the pantheon of scarce and desirable issues. This example is sharply struck and essentially untoned, showing good luster quality and mild scuffiness in the left obverse field that seemingly restricts the grade. From The Collection of Donald E. Bently, sold for the benefit of the Bently Foundation.
