Lot Description
1901 $1 MS63 PCGS. The 1901 Morgan dollar is a condition rarity that is normally found in circulated grades, or at best in the lower Mint State grades. This Select Mint State piece presents an excellent opportunity for the advanced collector, as PCGS as only certified 31 finer examples (6/13). A typical strike results in central weakness over Liberty's ear as usual. Both sides of this piece have brilliant, satin luster beneath delicate champagne toning. The obverse and reverse peripheries display rich gold, lavender, and sea-green toning that enhances the eye appeal. This Morgan dollar represents the first year of operation at the third Philadelphia Mint on Spring Garden Street.
