    1884-S Morgan, Well-Struck MS61

    1884-S $1 MS61 PCGS. The 1883-S Morgan dollar issue and, far more so, the 1884-S, are the first two truly elusive S-mint issues in the series in Mint State. In the case of the 1884-S, despite a mintage exceeding 3 million coins, most of the issue appears to have been melted in the Pittman Act furnaces of 1918 and afterward, judging by the paucity of Mint State survivors. This Mint State example of the 1884-S is silver-gray with no more than a hint of deeper color. Numerous reeding marks and mostly horizontal scrapes on Liberty's cheek account for the grade, but the well-struck surfaces are partial recompense. This piece would be a great acquisition for a Mint State set at a reasonable price.
