    1893-S Dollar, XF40
    Appealing Key-Date Specimen

    1893-S $1 XF40 PCGS. The lowest business strike mintage of the entire series belongs to the 1893-S issue. Since the Morgan dollar is the most popular of all 19th century U.S. coin types, and perhaps the most popular U.S. type of all time, that means that thousands of collectors have fervently pursued this issue for many decades, and will doubtless continue to do so for a great many more.

    This example displays even, light silver-gray coloration over both sides. The central devices exhibit noticeable wear, but most of the other design motifs are nearly complete. Delicate hairlines and a few small marks are easily consistent with the assigned grade of this appealing key date specimen.
