Lot Description
1900-O/CC $1 MS67 PCGS. CAC. VAM-12. A Top 100 Variety. Ex: Jack Lee I, Jack Lee II. During the 1970s, Morgan specialist Jack Lee amassed what was widely acknowledged as the greatest Morgan dollar set. Once sold, he could not resist the temptation to begin the collection once again, in only the finest quality. Eventually, he reacquired several of the pieces from his first collection. It is easy to understand why the present coin was chosen for both sets, since it is essentially pristine and is from the VAM-12 reverse, which shows more of the Carson City undermintmark than any other 1900-O/CC VAM. Brilliant, sharply struck, and unimprovable. Population: 2 in 67, 0 finer (6/11).
