    Undeniably Rare 1882-O/S Morgan in Gem Brilliant Uncirculated

    1882-O/S $1 MS65 NGC. Bowers (1993) speculates that hundreds of thousands of the 6 million Silver Dollars produced at the New Orleans Mint in 1882 are of the O/S variety. Since this variety is plentiful in circulated grades, this estimate seems reasonable. Uncirculated examples are another matter entirely, and Bowers states: "The 1882-O/S is very scarce in lower Mint State grades, scarcest in MS64, and very rare in MS65." PCGS has not seen a single example above MS64, and NGC report just eight (resubmissions?) coins in MS65 and none finer (8/01). This is a lovely, satin textured Gem with no toning and few abrasions. The strike is a trifle soft on the hair over Liberty's ear, but the overall definition is well above average by the standards of the New Orleans Mint. A significant bidding opportunity for the Morgan Dollar specialist.
