A respectable mintage of 5 million pieces conceals the rare, conditionally challenging nature of this San Francisco Mint Morgan Dollar issue. Nicely preserved and very appealing, this coin is softly frosted in texture and generally smooth. Otherwise brilliant, a few wisps of pale-gold iridescence are scattered about on the obverse. Key-date issue!
