Lot Description
1896-S $1 MS62+ PCGS. The 1896-S Morgan dollar is much more difficult to locate than its mintage of 5 million pieces would suggest. It is likely that much of the large production total was melted in 1918 under the provisions of the Pittman Act. This high-end MS62 example displays well-detailed design elements, vibrant mint luster, and attractive champagne-gold patina at the peripheries.
