    1893-S Morgan Dollar, AU50
    Sought-After Key Issue

    1893-S $1 AU50 PCGS. The financial Panic of 1893 resulted in the repeal of the Sherman Silver Purchase Act, releasing the U.S. Mint from its obligation to produce millions of unneeded silver dollars every year. Accordingly, mintages were drastically reduced at all three active Mints that year and the San Francisco facility only struck 100,000 Morgan dollars, the lowest business-strike production total of the series. As might be expected, the 1893-S is an elusive issue today, and it is the acknowledged key to the business-strike series.

    The present is an attractive AU specimen that exhibits only light wear on the design elements. The lightly abraded surfaces show traces of prooflike reflectivity in sheltered areas, with highlights of greenish-gold and lavender-gray toning. This coin will be a welcome addition to a fine collection of Morgan dollars.
