    Lovely Mint State 1896-O Morgan Dollar

    1896-O $1 MS62 PCGS. This is a marvelous date for its high mintage and low survival. Most of the 4,900,000 coins struck went into circulation about the time of issue, and few remained for later distribution. Over the years, very few bags of these coins came into the market place, and when they did, it was likely only one or two at a time. As a result, attractive Mint State examples are particularly elusive today. This pleasing piece has frosty silver luster with brilliant white obverse and reverse surfaces. A tiny spot of gold toning is limited to the border below the 18 in the date. The surfaces are lightly scuffed as expected for the grade.(#7242) (Registry values: P9, N1793)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2563, PCGS# 7242)

    Weight: 26.73 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
