Lot Description
1894-O $1 MS64+ PCGS. CAC. The 1894-O Morgan dollar boasts a smallish mintage of 1.7 million pieces, and attractive Mint State coins are rare. Production values were low at the New Orleans Mint during this time period, and nearly all examples seen exhibit weak striking details. While population data suggests the 1894-O is merely scarce in Choice Mint State condition, well detailed specimens with strong luster are quite elusive. The present coin is a high-end Choice example, with well-detailed design elements that display a touch of softness on the hair strands above Liberty's ear and the eagle's breast. The surfaces exhibit vibrant satiny mint luster, with wisps of golden toning and ample eye appeal. Population: 26 in 64+, 9 finer (3/11).
