    Description

    1893-O Silver Dollar, MS64
    Semiprooflike and Eye-Catching
    Prohibitively Rare Any Finer

    1893-O $1 MS64 PCGS. CAC. Ex: JCS Collection. The 1893-O boasts a famously low mintage of 300,000 coins, produced entirely in January 1893. No further coinage of this denomination occurred at New Orleans until July 1894. It is presumed that many coins were paid out in the 19th century and circulated, although some pieces later found there way into storage at the Treasury building in Washington D.C., where they were dispersed in the 1950s. No significant bag quantities of this date are known to have survived, and it shows in the high-grade population. Q. David Bowers provides a concise summary of the 1893-O Morgan's high-grade scarcity in A Guide Book of Morgan Silver Dollars, fifth edition:

    "Mint State coins are very elusive in both an absolute and a relative (to the demand) sense. Choice MS-64 coins are rare and MS-65 coins are of sufficient fame that an auction house might showcase one in a news release."



    This CAC-endorsed near-Gem is quite beautifully preserved. It is also vibrantly lustrous, unlike most examples of the 1893-O. A hint of characteristic strike softness in the centermost areas is hardly noticed due to the semiprooflike fields, which captivate the viewer. A beautiful 1893-O dollar if there ever was one. PCGS lists only nine finer pieces, Prooflike and Deep Mirror Prooflike pieces included. CAC: 20 in 64, 0 finer (7/19).
