Lot Description
1901 $1 MS62 NGC. Ex: Jules Reiver Collection. Not especially rare in VF and lower grades, the 1901 issue's true scarcity emerges in Mint State. In fact, Bowers (1993) writes, "Of all Philadelphia Mint business strike dollars, excepting the spectral 1895, the 1901 is the rarest in Mint State." Any Uncirculated 1901 Morgan dollar is highly desirable, particularly when it is as fully lustrous as the present piece. This nearly brilliant coin has a remarkably unabraded obverse, and the reverse is also clean aside from a milling mark on the eagle's belly and a mint-made strike-through beneath the first T in TRUST. Ex: Jules Reiver Collection (Heritage, 1/2006), lot 21652, which realized $6,900. From The New Hope Collection.
