Lot Description
1921 $1 MS67 PCGS. With a mintage of 44.6 million pieces, it is no wonder that the 1921 Morgan dollar has never been given much respect as a rarity. And, in fact, it is not rare in the absolute sense. But in Superb condition the 1921 is a very elusive coin. We feel privileged to have offered four of the 20 MS67 coins that have been certified by PCGS and NGC. This is an absolutely spectacular coin, and it is quite unlike the 1921 Morgans one normally encounters in the numismatic marketplace. The cheek of Liberty, and indeed all the surfaces are immaculately preserved. There are none of the usually-seen tiny abrasions that one associates with this issue. The peripheries show a pronounced granularity from metal flow that is most attractive, giving the coin a matte-like appearance. Brilliant throughout and showing thick mint luster, the only noticeable mark is an angling abrasion in Liberty's hair. A rare opportunity for the Morgan specialist. From the Palm Beach Collection.
