Lot Description
1895-O $1 MS63 NGC. The appearance at auction of any Mint State 1895-O Morgan dollar is an event that will make dedicated series fans sit up and take notice, as there are far too few to satisfy the intense demand for this elusive issue. The mintage was only 450,000 pieces to begin with, and most examples found are around the XF-AU level. The 1895-O Morgan is the sole series issue not known to have been found in the great Treasury releases of the 1960s, multiplying its rarity while notably diminishing the supply of Mint State examples. This well-struck Select example shows satiny surfaces with a clean cheek on Liberty; in fact, few marks appear throughout either side beyond scattered, minor ticks. The superb eye appeal is increased through the beautiful patina in shades of copper, pink, and olive-green that covers both sides. This is a lot of coin for the grade, and a tremendous opportunity for series fans. Census: 14 in 63, 16 finer (8/12).
