1886-S Morgan Dollar, Original Uncirculated Coin
Year: 1886S
Condition: MS-61 to 62
Description: An original example of this tougher San Francisco Mint issue, surprisingly difficult to find when you want or need one. I used to frequently purchase lots of better date/grade S-Mint Dollars that came out of the Nevada casinos that contained all of the dates from 1883 to 1891 - the 1886 was noticeably absent from most of these hoards. This is a good example of a coin that was almost certainly released in the early 1960's during the heyday of the Silver Dollar bags that came out of the Treasury, and was put away by a non-numismatist as a novelty. It survived as part of a general coin hoard so picked up some overall scuffing and light marks in storage, limiting the overall grade to no better than a 62 (which is why I have not sent it in for grading).

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.

1899 Morgan Dollar, Very Choice Unc
Year: 1889
Condition: MS-64
Description: Odd as it may seem, while the 1889 Morgan Dollar is one of the half dozen MOST common coins in grades from EF to MS-63, at MS-65 it becomes a very tough coin, and is priced twice that of a common date Gem BU. In my experience, MS-64 coins are not particularly common, but have virtually no price premium in the current market. This makes them a "sleeper" in terms of value in my book. This example is an original coin, well struck, lustrous and bright - not all that common for an 1889, which was a high mintage date that commonly comes dull and with rough fields due to extended die use. It also appear to have a minor doubled die Reverse, just visible on the tips of a couple of feathers of the eagle's tail (not in the VAM book as far as I could tell with a quick look).

Year: 1889
Condition: Choice Uncirculated (MS-63)
Description: A bright original Choice BU coin, equivalent to a certified MS-63. 1889 is probably THE most common Philly Mint 1880's date in EF to MS-63, but not so much so above this grade, probably to the high mintage wearing out dies. This is a nice bright original coin.

1889 Morgan Dollar, Toned Unc
Year: 1889
Condition: NGC MS-64
Description: For those who appreciate original toning: a "one sided" example of this common date, with uncommon color. The Obverse is toned a mix of greenish-gray at center with light pink mixed with blue at the rims. This sort of toning commonly developed in Whitman folders, where the Obverse of a coin came in contact with the folded over end paper. The Reverse is just off white with a few color highlights. Not as dark as the image makes it appear - unfortunately, the best light angle to properly show accurate color and luster on toned coins is usually the same angle that reflects light back into the camera!

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-CC Morgan Dollar, Circulated
Year: 1890CC
Condition: VG-Fine
Description: We offer nice, average circulated examples of this "common" Carson City date. The image shown is stock and represents the average quality that you will receive. If the price is listed as "POR" that means that we are temporarily out of stock - please inquire.

1891-CC Morgan Dollar, Original EF
Year: 1891CC
Condition: EF-40
Description: This coin has been SOLD - I left the listing posted to show the quality of coin I try to sell. A nice original example of this better date, reasonably common but usually found abused by prior owners.

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-CC Morgan Dollar, Circulated
Year: 1892CC
Condition: Very Good
Description: A nice, average circulated example. This looks very similar to coin #1796, an 1890-CC Dollar.
Price: $185.00

1892-S Morgan Dollar, Solid VF
Year: 1892S
Condition: VF-20+
Description: The 1892-S is a very strange date. Below the grade of VF, it is usually priced as a common date. Apparently, a large part of the low mintage (only 1.2 Million) was released immediately after minting, and circulated widely and completely. Most coins I encounter are Good at best, and most seem to have been cleaned, which indicates that they were in circulation until the 1950's. In VF or better this is a semi-key date. The example offered here is a solid VF-20 and appears original and damage free.

1893-O Morgan Dollar, Very Fine
Year: 1893O
Condition: VF-25+
Description: A solid VF+ example of this tougher 1890's New Orleans date. Probably lightly cleaned a very long time ago, as most circulated survivors have been, but seem OK now. I note one small rim bump at the top of the Reverse. PRICE TEMPORARILY REDUCED FOR THE HOLIDAYS.

1894-O Morgan Dollar, Original EF/AU
Year: 1894O
Condition: EF/AU
Description: A very original coin, close to AU, and could possibly certify at that grade on a good day. I will guarantee a cert of at least EF-45 at PCGS (where I might decide to send this shortly). 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.

1894-S Morgan Dollar, Micro S, Original and RARE
Year: 1894S
Condition: Choice AU
Description: Just a flat out RARE coin, even on the West Coast. A totally original, light gray coin that has not been messed with, which is what makes it rare. The doubling in value between AU and Unc makes the temptation to "improve" a coin like this by cleaning it almost impossible to resist, at least it did in the 1960's/70's when these were available. Guaranteed to certify as an AU-55 or your money and fees back.

1894-S Morgan Dollar, Circulated
Year: 1894S
Condition: VG to Fine
Description: Similar in nature to the 1892-S, this date is difficult to find above VF, as apparently most entered circulation. This is a decent VG to Fine coin that will fill the hole, until one of the more elusive VF or EF coins can be found - true AU's are quite rare, especially if original such as the coin being offered as #4071 on this website.
Price: $55.00

1895-O Morgan Dollar, Nice Average Circ Coin
Year: 1895O
Condition: Good/Very Good
Description: Nice color and even wear, problem free and suitable for a lower grade Morgan Dollar set. This stands a chance at certifying as a VG-8, but I will price it as a Good+.
Price: $295.00
Item Id #004098    See Details...
1898-O Morgan Dollar, Choice Uncirculated
Year: 1898O
Condition: Uncirculated
Description: A nice original Uncirculated coin, from a local group saved during the bank releases in the 1960's. No huge or ugly marks (the worst being a "mash" spot on the trunk of Liberty's neck), bright and all white. Common, but a nice fresh example if you want just one truly Unc Morgan Dollar. The certified equivalent would likely be MS-63.
Price: $55.00

1899 Morgan Dollar, Semi-Key Date
Year: 1899
Condition: VG-10
Description: Very scarce in any circulated grade below VF - flat out RARE as a VG! Few coins "got out" and were able to circulate this much before being snatched out of circulation once Dollars began to be hoarded in the 1950's. An original coin, but a bit more "average" surfaces, more than acceptable for a lower grade Morgan Dollar set.
Price: $150.00
Item Id #001413    See Details...
Year: 1899O
Condition: Uncirculated (MS-61 to 62)
Description: A bright original Uncirculated coin, from a local group of BU Dollars put away during the 1960's. Oddly enough, the '99-O is more common as an Unc than it is in EF or AU, indicating that most struck were stored by the Treasury and released from 1955-63, rather than earlier.

1899-O Morgan Dollar, Gem BU
Year: 1899O
Condition: NGC MS-65
Description: As a counter to many of the slightly tougher P Mints of the late 1890's, the 1898 to 1904 (save the 1903-O of course) New Orleans Mint coins are generally very common, even in Gem BU grades. They made a lot of them, and many were saved, leaving a larger number of survivors in choice grades - lucky for us as it makes them affordable. This is a very original, very clean example, most off white with a touch of gold toning around part of the rims.

1899-O Morgan Dollar, Gem BU PCGS Coin
Year: 1899O
Condition: PCGS MS-65
Description: A nice "average" Gem BU coin out of a local hoard of Dollars that I have been slowly buying from the owner, whose parents put the coins away during the "Silver Dollar Rush" of the 1960's.
Price: $173.00
Item Id #004101    See Details...
Year: 1901O
Condition: Uncirculated (MS-62/63)
Description: A bright original Uncirculated coin, from a local group of BU Dollars put away during the 1960's. Most dealers would certainly offer this coin as "Choice BU" (MS-63+), but as it is common and I have a number in stock, I will simply call it "Unc". This particular coin does not noticeably differ in its appearance from coin #2250 (a few more small marks), as they came from the same BU roll.
Price: $55.00

1901-O Morgan Dollar, Near Gem BU PCGS Coin
Year: 1901O
Condition: PCGS MS-64
Description: A nice near Gem BU coin out of a local hoard of Dollars that I have been slowly buying from the owner, whose parents put the coins away during the "Silver Dollar Rush" of the 1960's.
Price: $79.00
Item Id #004102    See Details...
Year: 1902
Condition: AU-50+
Description: A lightly worn AU+, however it appears to have been lightly dipped at one point, probably well over a decade ago, to remove some toning. This seems to be the fate of any number of such pieces, as the 1902 is not terribly common on the West Coast as an original AU or Unc coin. Images upon request.
