    Elusive Premium Gem
    1904 Morgan Dollar

    1904 $1 MS66 PCGS. The rich, variegated patina over both sides of this Premium Gem constitutes its most auspicious characteristic. The most prominent shade is rose-gray, which dominates across the fields and central devices, but lovely bands of turquoise, yellow-gold, and red-orange occur near the obverse and reverse peripheries. The striking definition is crisp and clear throughout, even if the C4 reverse type leaves the eagle's breast feathers a trifle flat. Vibrantly lustrous and well preserved, with a few shallow marks in the right obverse field that are mostly concealed by the deep toning. A conditionally rare example of this much-maligned issue, in a lofty grade which has not been surpassed at either NGC or PCGS. Population: 14 in 66, 0 finer (3/09).(Registry values: P5, N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 256U, PCGS# 7290)

    Weight: 26.73 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
