Lot Description
1901 $1 MS63 PCGS. Few issues embody condition rarity so well in the popular imagination as the 1901 Morgan dollar. Readily available in circulated grades, it becomes scarce at the MS63 level and clearly rare any finer, such that immense price pressure is put on lesser Mint State and even near-Mint pieces. This Select example is minimally toned with boldly swirling silver luster and only a few faint hints of gold. Though this piece has flaws including collected light abrasions on Liberty's cheek and a depression connecting the first three stars on the obverse, none of these are out of line with the MS63 designation and the eye appeal is strong on the whole.
