    1895 Morgan Dollar, PR50 Details
    'King of the Morgan Dollars'
    A Collectible Example

    1895 $1 -- Damaged, Cleaned -- ANACS. PR50 Details. The fame of the 1895 Morgan dollar continues to drive strong demand for this scarce issue only known in proof format. Most examples that appear at auction are well out of reach for average collectors, making the date essentially unobtainable for the vast majority of Morgan dollar enthusiasts. However, occasionally circulated pieces appear, offering a more affordable option for the budget-conscious collector. This is such a coin. Light wear affects the high points of the devices, while the surfaces are uniformly slate-gray with a slightly clouded appearance due to an old cleaning. Several rim nicks on the reverse are also noted by ANACS, as well as a scratch immediately behind Liberty's eye. The characteristics are easy to overlook in favor of the greater accessibility this piece provides compared to problem-free coins that continually climb toward six figures at auction.
