Lot Description
1901 $1 MS63 PCGS. The 1901 Philadelphia Mint Morgan dollar issue is a notable rarity in the upper reaches of Mint State, where near-Gems are the highest grade level practically obtainable. While PCGS has seen slightly more than 100 pieces in the MS63 grade of this coin, it has seen 10 in MS63+, 28 in MS64 (none in MS64+), and three in MS65, the top grade (8/13). This example offers softly lustrous pinkish-gray central areas with glints of pale aqua near the obverse rims and russet-gold ringing the reverse. A few scattered nicks and marks account for the grade but are not overly bothersome. A prize acquisition for the many collectors putting together a set of Morgan dollars.
