Lot Description
1896 $1 MS67+ PCGS. CAC. The 1896 Morgan dollar has a reported mintage of nearly 10 million pieces, making the date one of the most available P-mint issues of the decade. Unlike many dates with large mintages, the 1896 is known as a well-produced issue, easily located in all grades up to the Gem level. Of course, the population does thin out in higher grades, and few survivors can match the quality and eye appeal of the coin offered here. The present coin is a spectacular high-end Superb Gem, with sharply detailed design elements and vibrant cartwheel mint luster. The virtually pristine surfaces are mostly brilliant, with a few hints of golden-tan toning. This coin is a "must Have" for Registry Set collectors and we expect spirited competition when this lot is called. Population: 36 in 67 (2 in 67+), 0 finer (8/13).
