Lot Description
1895-O $1 MS64 NGC. This coin was previously offered as lot 4242 in our May 2002 sale of the Morris Silverman Collection of Silver Dollars. It was cataloged in that important sale as: "The 1895-O is one of the most unobtainable issues in the Morgan Dollar series. It is especially elusive in mint condition, and in fact, in Uncirculated grades it approaches the rarity of the legendary 1892-S and 1893-S. As we have pointed out in the past, as an issue the '95-O is most easily defined [by what it is not]: it is usually not an issue that is attractive, often they have dull gray surfaces, abrasions are usually a problem, and they are almost always NOT found in mint condition. This is a well struck piece that is nearly abrasion-free. The mint luster is subdued, as usual, but certainly complete over each side. Very lightly toned." Population: 12 in 64, 1 finer (7/02).
