    Rim Toned 1887-S Morgan Dollar in Gem

    1887-S $1 MS65 NGC. The only recorded quantities of Mint State 1887-S Morgan Dollars that entered the numismatic market did so in the 1940s and 1950s. While these releases (mostly from storage in the San Francisco Mint) have resulted in a significant number of MS60-MS64 quality examples in today's market, Gems remain elusive. Typically well produced for the issue, both sides are sharply struck throughout with swirling cartwheel (i.e. frosty) luster. There are no singularly distracting abrasions, and the otherwise untoned features reveal original peripheral toning in golden-tan shades.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2554, PCGS# 7180)

    Weight: 26.73 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
