    Description

    1896-S Morgan Dollar, MS65+
    Late-Series Condition Rarity

    1896-S $1 MS65+ PCGS. CAC. The 1896-S Morgan dollar has a reported mintage of exactly 5 million pieces, making the issue easy to locate in lower Mint State grades. The 1896-S is very scarce at the Gem level, however, and a prime condition rarity in finer grades, making this high-end Gem an especially attractive combination of quality and value.

    The present coin offers well-detailed design elements, with just a touch of the usual softness on the hair above Liberty's ear. The creamy surfaces radiate vibrant cartwheel mint luster, with no mentionable signs of contact. Population: 66 in 65 (3 in 65+), 4 finer (8/13).(Registry values: P7, N4719) (NGC ID# 2564, PCGS# 7244)

    Weight: 26.73 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
