Lot Description
1894-O $1 MS64+ PCGS. CAC. This near-Gem 1894-O Morgan dollar with the Plus kicker is a treat for toning enthusiasts, as well as for seekers of a nice high-grade example of this elusive issue. The MS64 level is about as high as even Mint State coins are apt to be found. The MS64+ grade of the present piece places it as among 25 so graded, with a meager nine submissions in MS65 the finest at PCGS (6/11). Frosty luster on both sides is silver in the center obverse, ceding to golden-brown and ice-blue at the margins. The reverse is completely toned with a similar palette. A few small contact marks on Liberty's cheek are in keeping with the grade, and a small weakly struck area over the ear is as usual. But the lovely patina and overall clean surfaces are this coin's calling cards. Population: 25 in 64+, 9 finer (6/11).
