Bright silver and fully lustrous on the obverse and reverse with a mere dash of pale gold with a few russet accents near the rims. One of the true condition rarities of the Morgan silver dollar series, as generations of searching for mint state examples has yielded so few. To date the number of Choice examples certified by PCGS tops out at 118 pieces, a far cry from those needed to satisfy collector demand. Here is one of those few, showing both a good strike, luster and a touch of toning. Destined for a high grade Morgan collection.
