Lot Description
1895-O $1 MS60 NGC. Typical of many Morgan dollars, the reverse appears finer than the obverse. Both sides have brilliant silver surfaces, the obverse with slightly subdued ivory luster and the reverse much brighter. Both sides show light field scuffs and abrasions, entirely consistent with the grade. In fact, the surfaces are much cleaner than normally expected for the grade the NGC has assigned. The 1895-O Morgan is well known for its conditional rarity, and any Mint State example is elusive. Consider that NGC has only certified 105 Mint State 1895-O dollars at all different grade levels. Census: 22 in 60, 83 finer (10/08).
