Lot Description
1898 $1 Morgan Dollar--Die Adjustment Strike--AU50 PCGS. The die-set spacing was being adjusted when this Morgan dollar was produced, likely before the run of 5.9 million dollar began or between die changes. The date is visible along with the left-side stars, while S UNUM are essentially absent, indicating a slight axial misalignment. As expected, the reverse shows a similar misalignment, so that ONE and UNITED STATES O are readable. Some silver-white glints appear in the interstices of the wreath, but most of the coin has toned in shades of amber, jade, and ice-blue.
