    1902-O Silver Dollar, MS67+
    Tied for the Finest Certified, CAC

    1902-O $1 MS67+ PCGS. CAC. Given conditions at the New Orleans Mint and within the Treasury's storage vaults, it is nothing short of a miracle that a high-end Superb Gem 1902-O dollar can exist. Only a handful of such pieces are indicated in the population reports. The 1902-O was never known for high quality. It was a "Creole" date liberated from Treasury storage in October 1962, when a profusion of Mint State examples entered the market. Most were flatly struck and bagmarked. Somehow, the present coin was carefully preserved. Brilliant and frosted surfaces are the antithesis of a normal 1902-O, which typically lacks any semblance of eye appeal. Vibrant silver luster fills both sides, and the smooth surfaces are free of contact. The strike is needle-sharp except above Liberty's ear, where its O-mint legacy reveals itself and the strike is not quite full. Eye appeal is extraordinary, as expected for the Plus-Graded and CAC-endorsed Superb Gem level. Population: 2 in 67+, 0 finer. CAC: 13 in 67, 0 finer (11/19).(Registry values: P1, N4719)
