Lot Description
1921-D $1 MS67 PCGS. Ex: Mike Gilley Collection. The 1921-D Morgan dollar is common in Mint State. PCGS/NGC population figures reveal an abundant supply of coins through near-Gem, after which the number of specimens decreases significantly. The services have graded 10 MS67 pieces, and NGC has certified one finer. The 1921-D tends to be weakly struck. David Bowers (2005) writes: "Sharply struck pieces are in the distinct minority and will require extensive cherrypicking to find." The present Superb Gem strays from this profile, as most of the design features are well brought up, including bold delineation in the hair over Liberty's ear, and clarity (though not fullness) on the eagle's breast. The leaf ribbing is mostly crisp, save for minor softness on those on the lower part of the wreath. Bright luster exudes from both sides, and each displays a whisper or two of barely discernible gold color. A few minute marks on the well preserved surfaces are not worthy of individual mention. Some peripheral cracks are visible, slightly more so on the obverse. Population: 5 in 67, 0 finer (11/08). From The Arno Collection. See: Video Lot Description
