Description:
1888-O 'Scarface' Morgan Dollar, MS63
Top Collector Variety
1888-O $1 Scarface MS63 PCGS. VAM-1B3. A Top 100 Variety. This Select Mint State example of the popular Scarface variety shows a beautiful crescent of iridescent color near the left obverse rim, with the remainder of the surfaces showing untoned silver-gray and pinkish-gray dominating the center reverse. The Scarface die crack includes the stop between E and P in the motto, running downward faintly onto Liberty's nose, extending fully across Liberty's cheek and partway downward onto the neck. This piece is attributed as Scarface on the PCGS encapsulation. A long, thin scrape crosses the cheek, perpendicular to the Scarface feature, and another heavy bagmark appears in the lower hair. A few other luster grazes appear in the obverse toned crescent, together accounting for the grade.
