Year: 18840
Condition: NGC MS-65

1884-CC Morgan Dollar, Original AU, RARE!
Year: 1884CC
Condition: AU-55
Description: (SOLD September, 2016 for $239, on ebay! - that says something about the rarity of this coin) An original Choice Almost Uncirculated coin. Perhaps a bit odd to say, but as common as this date is in Uncirculated condition this is perhaps the RAREST circulated Morgan Dollar of any date (save the non-existant 1895 business strike), as 85% of the original Mintage was held and released in the GSA sales. This spent perhaps a month in circulation, somewhere in the inland Northwest, "Silver Dollar" country even through 1965 or so. Very little high point wear, mainly a loss of luster in the fields. About half of the luster remains under moderate original toning. In my opinion this would easily certify as a fifty-five if submitted (fifty-eight on a good day with a tailwind perhaps). It really does not matter, as if you want a circulated example to match your set, the opportunity does not come along very often. A very cool coin and suitable for someone who wants to match high end circulated coins in a set, rather than sticking in the usual bright white BU coin.

1885-CC Morgan Dollar, Choice Uncirculated
Year: 1885CC
Condition: PCGS MS-62
Description: A bright original Uncirculated, likely cracked out of a GSA case sometime in the past, when premiums for GSA versus non-GSA coins was not significant. Not surprising as the GSA sales contained the vast majority of the 1885-CC mintage, so this was pretty much the only place to get a BU coin. I think PCGS might have been a touch harsh with this coin, as I thought that it would come back a 63. Priced at Greysheet MS-60 ASK (cash price).

1885-CC Morgan Dollar, Choice Uncirculated, GSA case
Year: 1885CC
Condition: PCGS MS-64
Description: This is a nice bright original Choice Uncirculated coin in a GSA case, certified in the newer oversized PCGS holder used to house these coins without cracking them out of the government plastic. The GSA sales were the source of perhaps 90% of all of the Uncirculated specimens known. No problems or major marks, just the usual scattering of moderate marks that keep this out of the Gem category. No box or cert card with this coin, although I may be able to scare one up if asked to look - sold for what it is, an attractive and obvious BU Carson City Mint coin. On Sale for Christmas.

1885-O Morgan Dollar, Nicely Toned Original BU Coin
Year: 1885O
Condition: NGC MS-64
Description: A nice Uncirculated example of this common date, with a spectacular crescent of electric blue rim toning from 11:00 to 1:00 of the Obverse - the remaining portions of the rims on both sides shows russet red with some touches of yellow. Housed in an old NGC "fatty" holder, which is very clean - unusual to find today which indicates that this was long housed in a collection. Certainly worth a small premium for the color and attractive surfaces.

1886-O Morgan Dollar, Original Choice AU, RARE
Year: 1886O
Condition: AU-55+
Description: An original Choice Almost Uncirculated example of this better New Orleans Mint date, which is a condition rarity. Very scarce overall, rare as an original coin, as most examples close to Unc have been "conserved" to appear better. In my profession opinion as a PCGS dealer, this would most likely certify AU-55, however it appears to be the equal on a number of AU-58 coins sold through Heritage, so who knows. Regardless, a PQ example of a tough date to find about VF, and expensive in Unc. This would not look too far out of place in such a set.

1887-S Morgan Dollar, Uncirculated, PCGS Certified
Year: 1887S
Condition: PCGS MS-62
Description: A true original BU, this shows some typical mostly light, scattered marks (one mark of note is mentioned for accuracy, on the Eagle's chest). Otherwise fully lustrous and showing no toning, and has never been dipped.
Price: $199.00

1887-S Morgan Dollar, Choice Uncirculated
Year: 1887S
Condition: Choice Uncirculated
Description: An original BU example of this better date, out of an old set. This coin is very clean overall and would easily certify as MS-64, except for a light scuff across Liberty's cheek from contact with an album slide at some point. Still probably a technical MS-63, priced as just a nice BU coin.

1887-S Morgan Dollar, Choice Almost Uncirculated
Year: 1887S
Condition: AU-55+
Description: An original AU/Unc example of this better date, which circulated very briefly, likely in the 1960's, before being put aside. Nice color and almost all of the luster remains, just a bit of scuffing wear.
Price: $63.00

1888-S Morgan Dollar, Circulated
Year: 1888S
Condition: Fine-12
Description: A date that has become difficult to find in recent years, even up here in "S Mint Country". This example is your average Fine, as it shows some light marks but the color is reasonably good and no major "warts" to mention. Priced at about Wholesale.

1888-S Morgan Dollar, Original Uncirculated Better date Coin
Year: 1888S
Condition: MS-61/62
Description: An original Uncirculated example of this better date with light original toning. A bit baggy and some notable scuffs & scratches, but about average for a Dollar that undoubtedly was put aside during the 1960's "Silver Dollar Rush".
Price: $379.00

1888-S Morgan Dollar, Original Choice AU/Unc
Year: 1888S
Condition: AU-58
Description: A very original AU/Uncirculated example of this better date, with light scattered scuffing under original color. Undoubtedly was put aside during the 1960's "Silver Dollar Rush". This is the type of coin "processed" to offer as a bargain priced Unc, as true strictly Uncirculated examples are not particularly common.

1888-S Morgan Dollar, Scarce Near Gem Example
Year: 1888S
Condition: PCGS MS-64
Description: (SOLD April, 2017) A tough, low mintage date, difficult to find in Uncirculated grades even here in "S Mint Country". A fresh coin out of an old Eastern Oregon collection, well struck and with attractive light toning highlights. Bowers notes that the strike on this date is often "unsatisfactory" - NOT a problem with this coin. The PCGS Population drops off rapidly after this grade, and the price jumps considerably. This is a very clean, PQ 64 as the images clearly show, with only one area of marks of note. The toning color and pattern are similar to those of coins from the Redfield hoard sold by Paramount - I do not know if that was the source of this coin, but if it was cracked out of a Redfield holder, it was a long time ago. Most MS-64 coins of this date are either white, or have somewhat unattractive toning - not a problem with this coin I will also note that this coin is cleaner and more attractive that several others I reviewed being offered on other venues. I think that I can safely guarantee a CAC sticker on this coin ...

1889-S Morgan Dollar, Original AU/Unc Slider
Year: 1889S
Condition: AU-58
Description: A true original AU/Unc fifty-eight "slider". Quite scarce as almost all coins that look like this have been dipped out to appear "Unc" in order to catch the $100+ spread in values. Yes, this is expensive for an AU, but I rarely see coins this original.

1889-S Morgan Dollar, Original Uncirculated Coin
Year: 1889S
Condition: Choice Uncirculated
Description: An original Uncirculated example of this better San Francisco Mint date. Never common, most examples that I have run across over the years have been at best AU. This coin shows some light haze on the surfaces, which may suggest that it came from the Redfield Dollar hoard - he was known to have had several bags of this date - this shows that the coin has not been dipped thankfully. A scattering of light marks limits this to the equivalent of a certified MS-63.

1889-S Morgan Dollar, Original Uncirculated Coin
Year: 1889S
Condition: Uncirculated
Description: An original Uncirculated example of this better San Francisco Mint date. Fully bright & original, this shows the light scattered marks that define an MS-60 to 62 Morgan Dollar. It is a common misconception among newer collectors that "Uncirculated coins can't have marks", which allows the less scrupulous to sell them processed AU coins as "Unc", at a "bargain" price. I suggest a thorough reading of the ANA Grading Guidelines, as well as those of PCGS/NGC. Regardless, this is a true BU coin - what "number" would get assigned by the services if submitted tends to depend on how the graders feel on that particular day. I will suggest MS-61 or 62. The small reddish spot on the Reverse is a stain left by an old grease spot.

1890 Morgan Dollar, Choice Uncirculated
Year: 1890
Condition: Choice Uncirculated (MS-63)
Description: A original Choice BU coin, but like most of this date it lacks some of the "pizazz" that the 1880's dates show. Poor strikes and bagmarks, with so-so luster are the rule, not the exception. This is reflected in the difference between the MS-63 price ($75 or so) and that of a true MS-65 Gem at over $2,000!! The coin offered here is bright and original, with light scattered marks to account for the grade; it does show some light weakness of overall detail due to the fact that both dies saw extended use and show die cracks.

1890-O Morgan Dollar, Original Choice BU Coin
Year: 1890O
Condition: Choice Uncirculated
Description: Struck a little better than the coin listed as #5126. Similarly lustrous but a few more small scattered marks - a "more average" Choice BU for the date.
Price: $114.00

1891-CC Morgan Dollar,
Year: 1891CC
Condition: PCGS MS-64
Description: (SOLD Feb. 2015 - the listing left posted for the information value) An attractive, bright white "no doubt" Choice BU example of this tougher Carson City Mint date. Also an example of the "Spitting Eagle" variety (VAM 3), so named for a small die gouge in front of the Eagle's beak. While not rare, it is famous as one of the first "VAMs" to catch the public's attention after the GSA Dollar sales of the 1970's.

1892 Morgan Dollar, Original Choice Uncirculated Example
Year: 1892
Condition: PCGS MS-64
Description: (Temporarily unavailable) A better Philadelphia Mint date, this is a true Choice BU example. A very good but not absolutely full strike, as there is weakness among the stars on the Obverse and "ONE DOLLAR" on the Reverse - however much better at center than is common. The luster overall is completely full, again just slightly "off" from the ideal but better than average. Once considered a major rarity, the Treasury bag releases of the late 1950's/60's produced many, however most were baggy, indifferent coins that would not grade above a 62 today. That overhang of average coins has led to the perception that this is not a tough P Mint date in Unc grades, however my experience shows otherwise. Like the 1893-P offered as coin #5323 (as of August, 2016), this came out of the same old set, and like that other coin it is possible that this came out of the LaVere Redfield hoard, but less likely. In any case,a decent specimen that offers a significant savings versus a MS-65 coin. On Sale for Christmas.

1892-O Morgan Dollar, Original
Year: 1892O
Condition: AU-58
Description: This date is perhaps the worst struck on average of all in the series. As a result, dealers get by by using the "poor strike" excuse to sell a nice AU coin as BU, or even "Gem BU" in the 1970's. This coin is original and spent less than a month certainly in circulation, picking up a very small amount of actual wear, to go along with the typical strike. The Eagle shows no breast feathers and roller marks from preparation of the planchet are still visible here; ditto on the Obverse in the area of Liberty's ear. This weakness of strike also affects the luster on many of these coins, which is substandard - this coin is better than many, but not up to par with say the typical common date O Mint Dollar of the 1880's. Useful as a grading example, this is also a decent original coin - I guarantee a certified grade of AU-58 if submitted.

1892-O Morgan Dollar, Well Struck EF+
Year: 1892O
Condition: EF-45
Description: An original Choice Extremely Fine example of this better New Orleans Mint date - what many dealers dip out and call "AU". As this date is perhaps the worst struck on average of all in the series, some dealers get by by using the "poor strike" excuse to overgrade. This coin is far better than most, with some hair detail over Liberty's ear.

1894-O Morgan Dollar, Original EF/AU
Year: 1894O
Condition: PCGS EF-45
Description: A very original coin and close to AU - closer than the "45" grade would indicate. The classic slightly "greenish-gray" color that most original O Mint Dollars should look like if they have not been cleaned, with significant amounts of luster under the mild toning. Problem free, which is unusual, as most coins "close" to AU have been cleaned to try to get the 150% premium for AU versus EF. Images shown included of the coin prior to certification.

1894-S Morgan Dollar, Choice Extremely Fine
Year: 1894S
Condition: EF-45+
Description: Original if just slightly dark, but very close to AU. This would probably certify as such if it was "white".
