    Sparkling White Gem Mint State 1882-O over S Morgan Silver Dollar

    1882-O/S $1 MS65 NGC. VAM-4. A Top 100 Variety. A frosty white coin which boasts strong luster, a good strike and excellent eye appeal. Note the quality of Liberty's cheek and neck, for rarely are these large open areas so free of contact marks or nicks. A strong loupe will note a scattering of small raised lumps, these were caused by the dies rusting slightly, and are present both on Liberty's face (forehead, eye, neck) and on the eagle. The overmintmark feature is clear with the center of the S quite plain within the O. This coin is identifiable by a small scrape hidden in the wreath above the NE of ONE and a minor reeding mark just above the back of the eagle's head. One of the finest to survive and very difficult to find in full Gem condition. In fact, the combined NGC and PCGS Population reports tally a total of eleven coins this high, with no pieces seen finer by either service. For the Morgan silver dollar specialist, this is a very important coin to obtain.(#7138)(Registry values: P5, N7079)
