Lot Description
1901 $1 MS63 NGC. The 1901 Morgan dollar is one of the most elusive dates of the series in higher Mint State grades, second only to the 1896-O. Coins in Select Mint State condition are scarce, and anything finer is rare. Currently, NGC has certified only 18 coins in higher numeric grades (8/10). The present coin is an attractive Select specimen, with bright, frosty mint luster. This example is well struck, with just the slightest softness on the eagle's breast and the hair above the ear. A scattering of minor abrasions on both sides is consistent with the grade.
