Lot Description
1888-O $1 Doubled Die Obverse AU58 PCGS. VAM-4. A Top 100 Variety. Morgan dollar collectors are a special group who enjoy creative names for the varieties they collect. Two examples appear in the 1888-O series. The cracked die variety is known as "Scarface" and this doubled obverse die variety, with the doubling most prominent at Liberty's lips, is known as "Hot Lips." Close examination reveals that the entire profile is doubled from eyelids down to the chin. This example is fully lustrous with brilliant, untoned silver surfaces and only a trace of wear on the highpoints. Population: 14 in 58, 0 finer (2/07). From The Jackson Hole Collection.
