    1887-O Morgan Dollar, MS66
    Registry Grade Example

    1887-O $1 MS66 PCGS. Ex: Jack Lee 2. The 1887-O Morgan dollar claims a large mintage of 11.5 million pieces, making it an available issue in absolute terms, but few survivors can match the quality and eye appeal of the present coin. Unfortunately, the 1887-O was not a well-produced issue and most examples seen tend to have weak strikes and lackluster surfaces. A number of coins were released into circulation at the time of issue and the 1887-O can be located in circulated grades with no difficulty. A significant portion of the mintage was held in government storage, and the 1887-O was released in bag quantities at intervals over the years, but these coins were often handled roughly during storage and the typical Uncirculated specimen exhibits numerous bagmarks and luster grazes. The 1887-O is a prime condition rarity above the MS65 grade level.

    This spectacular Premium Gem exhibits well-detailed design elements that show just a trace of the usual blending on the hair strands above Liberty's ear. The well-preserved surfaces display a few subtle hints of lavender and golden-tan toning at selected angles and unusually vibrant mint luster adds to the outstanding eye appeal. Population: 14 in 66, 0 finer (12/17).
