Lot Description
1896-O $1 MS63 NGC. An issue known for weak strikes, insipid luster, and excessive bagmarks, the 1896-O Morgan dollar is probably the most challenging date of the series in high grade. This well-struck Select example is a high-end representative for the date, with satiny mint luster and only a few minor contact marks on both sides. The surfaces display light golden-tan patina. NGC has graded only 14 coins in higher numeric grades (#/12).
