Lot Description
1896-S $1 MS64 NGC. The 1896-S Morgan dollar claims a mintage of 5 million pieces, but the issue is not plentiful in the context of the series. It is likely that many examples were melted under the provisions of the Pittman Act. The present coin is a well-struck Choice specimen, with satiny mint luster that seems a trifle subdued under traces of gold toning. From The Cyprus Collection.
