    Elusive Premium Gem 1879-O Dollar

    1879-O $1 MS66 PCGS. A captivating, snowy-white Premium Gem that is among the nicest 1879-O Dollars we have ever seen or offered. Both sides shimmer with radiant, satiny luster and only a touch of softness over Liberty ear can be pointed to as a deficiency of any kind. The '79-O is a favorite among collectors of Morgan Dollars and O-mint coinage alike, being the first of its kind from the New Orleans Mint. While seemingly abundant in AU and only modestly scarce in lesser Uncirculated grades, the availability of Gem or better examples is extremely limited. Population: 9 in 66, 0 finer (8/05).(#7090) (Registry values: P5, N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 253V, PCGS# 7090)

    Weight: 26.73 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
