Lot Description
1895-S Morgan Silver Dollar. MS-62 (NGC). Here is a coin in which the old split grading system might service as a better shorthand for its actual  appearance; this coin might be better regarded as MS-62/65, as the reverse is quite mark-free and lightly prooflike and looks more like an MS-65, while the obverse bears some contact marks that limit the overall grade of this coin. The frosty white surfaces and light russet-gold peripheries make this an ideal specimen for the collector seeking an eye appealing, high end specimen without spending over $10,000 for a fully gem specimen.
