Lot Description
1895-S $1 MS64+ S NGC. CAC. The San Francisco Mint struck only 400,000 Morgan silver dollars in 1895, and the portion of this mintage that was not released into circulation was roughly handled in storage. Most Mint State survivors are heavily bagmarked, and few examples grade higher than MS63. The present coin is a high-end Choice example that shows few signs of contact. The design elements are well-detailed, with just a touch of softness on the hair strands above Liberty's ear. Attractive shades of rose, gold, and blue patina visit the surfaces of both sides, with most of the color on the obverse. Census: 1 in 64+ S, 14 finer (12/11).
