    1887/6 Morgan Dollar, MS66+
    Registry Set Essential

    1887/6 $1 VAM-2, Top 100, MS66+ PCGS. CAC. A Top 100 Variety. More than 20 million Morgan dollars were struck at the Philadelphia Mint in 1887, the largest pre-1921 production of the series. A small portion of the mintage was struck from an overdated obverse die that shows the remnants of an undertype 6 on either side of the 7 in the date. The overdated die probably struck about 350,000 pieces of the reported mintage, but no official mintage figures were recorded.

    This Plus-graded Premium Gem exhibits sharply detailed design elements throughout and the virtually flawless brilliant surfaces radiate vibrant mint luster from both sides, creating outstanding eye appeal. This coin should find a home in the finest collection or Registry Set. Population: 16 in 66 (2 in 66+), 0 finer (1/20).

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 254Z, Variety PCGS# 133908, Base PCGS# 7174)
