Boldly active cartwheel luster supports warm champagne-gold iridescence. The strike is crisp and the eye appeal is choice for the grade. A notably scarce issue in all Mint State grades despite its mintage of 4.9 million pieces. At MS-63, as here, the word <em>rarity </em>comes into play. A nice opportunity for an alert Morgan dollar collector currently moving up into the next rarity tier in the series.
