    1889-O Morgan Dollar, MS65
    Exceptional Deep Mirror Prooflike Example

    1889-O $1 MS65 Deep Mirror Prooflike PCGS. CAC. Ex: PCGS Tour. The New Orleans Mint struck nearly 12 million Morgan silver dollars in 1889. Unfortunately, the strain of producing such a large mintage, with unavoidable die wear and relaxed quality control, shows plainly on the surviving coins today. Most examples seen are softly struck, with lackluster surfaces, and excessive bag marks. Finding even a marginally attractive specimen is a significant challenge, but the present coin is a happy exception to the rule. This spectacular Gem exhibits a decent strike, with some localized softness on the hair above the ear and sharp definition in most areas. The well-preserved surfaces include deeply mirrored prooflike fields that contrast boldly with the frosty devices. A few hints of sea-green and golden-tan toning enhance the outstanding eye appeal. Housed in an old green label holder. Population: 1 in 65 Deep Mirror Prooflike, 1 finer. CAC: 1 in 65, 0 finer (1/19).
    Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 6/2010), lot 1129, which realized $48,875.
