1883 Morgan Dollar, Choice Uncirculated
Year: 1883
Condition: MS-63
Description: The early Philadelphia Mint Morgan Dollars are a bit scarcer than those from the Branch Mints (other than Carson City), especially in MS-64 and above. This was due to excessive handling of bags, meaning more marks from banging together during transport. This is a nice original Choice BU coin, with a hint of light lemon yellow rim toning, likely from the wrapper of an original roll.

1883-0 Morgan Dollar, Gem Uncirculated, Nice Color
Year: 18830
Condition: NGC MS-65
Description: An attractive Gem with "splashy" Obverse toning highlights at the rim in blues & reds, over "old Silver" fields; the Reverse is similar with a bit less color at the rims. A nice coin.

1883-CC Morgan Dollar, Choice Uncirculated, Old Bag Toning
Year: 1883CC
Condition: PCGS MS-64
Description: An original coin showing toning from many years of being stored in a Treasury bag. It is likely that this was cracked out of a GSA holder at some point in the past to place into an album, as it came out of an old collection raw. The toning is not quite as dark as it appears in the main Obverse image, and has a lot of deeper red, blue and yellow mixed in. Otherwise a solid BU example of this popular Carson City date - worth a small premium I think for the toning.

1884-0 Morgan Dollar, Gem Uncirculated, Nice Color
Year: 18840
Condition: NGC MS-65
Description: An attractive Gem with light to moderate overall "sheet" toning on the Obverse, yellow-red at center with light blue-green rims. Similar color & pattern on the Reverse, just a bit less of it. A nice coin.

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.

1884-O Morgan Dollar, Choice Uncirculated, Deep Mirror Prooflike
Year: 1884O
Condition: PCGS MS-64PL
Description: Not sure what the boys in Newport Beach were smoking the day they graded this coin. I submitted this myself and measured 4+ Inches of reflection, so felt sure that it would come back DMPL, especially given the obvious Cameo contrast. About as close to DMPL as you can get without getting the nod from PCGS, apparently. Deep, watery mirrors that are plainly obvious, all white with a touch of color at the rim from years spent in a paper-wrapped roll of Dollars. "Mox Nix" as they used to say ... offered at my cost, this should be a decent deal for someone.

1884-S Morgan Dollar, Choicxe Extremely Fine, Semi Key Date
Year: 1884S
Condition: EF/AU
Description: A nice sharp example of this Semi Key date, close to AU. At the same show I purchased this at, I turned down a PCGS certified AU example of this coin that didn't look any different and had much less nice surfaces. Please Note: the actual color of this coin is a bit darker than shown.

1885-CC Morgan Dollar, Choice Uncirculated, Old NGC Holder
Year: 1885CC
Condition: NGC MS-63
Description: Housed in an old NGC "fatty" holder, likely certified prior to 1990. Attractive light rim toning from years spent in a coin album prior to certification, and a sense of Semi-Prooflike surfaces with a hint of Cameo contrast - a very nice looking coin overall.

1885-S Morgan Dollar, Original Well Struck Uncirculated Coin
Year: 1885S
Condition: MS-62+
Description: Well struck for a date that is noted for having weakness at center. Full hair over Liberty's ear and well defined breast feathers on the Eagle. Typical '85-S surfaces in that it is lightly baggy, but a genuine BU example of this scarce, Semi Key date. Bright luster on all white surfaces - my images make this look a bit "blue" but that is due to the lighting used.

1886 Morgan Dollar, Gem Uncirculated
Year: 1886
Condition: PCGS MS-65
Description: Very clean for the grade, a few wispy scuffs on Liberty's cheek, are all that kept this from a higher grade. Common to be sure but a very nice coin and sure to CAC if submitted. Worth a small premium versus the average, commercial, "just made it" 65 you commonly see today.

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-O Morgan Dollar, Choice Uncirculated
Year: 1887O
Condition: MS-63
Description: A nice bright white Uncirculated example. This date seems a little underrated to me, as I don't see as many true BU's as the relatively low price would indicate exist. The large number of "Sliders" masquerading as "Unc" coins has tended to keep the price down below MS-64.

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.

1888-O Morgan Dollar, Choice Uncirculated, Interesting Toning
Year: 1888O
Condition: MS-63
Description: An original Uncirculated coin, with an unusual ring-shaped toning pattern on the Reverse. This is genuine and was caused by the coin having spent many years in a wooden display case. These cases were sold as an "investment package" during the 1970's, with the coins inside being of course all of the dates commonly available due to being released in bag quantities during the '60's. All of the coins with this pattern are easily identifiable by the purple or purple-orange (as in this case) "doughnut". Not worth certifying, nonetheless an interesting item, for those who like colored coins.

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.

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.
Price: $159.00

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.

1889-S Morgan Dollar, Choice Uncirculated, Very Scarce
Year: 1889S
Condition: PCGS MS-64
Description: Once considered one of the greatest rarities in the entire Morgan Dollar series, along with the 1903-O, this date became more available after later releases in bag quantity. However, with a mintage of only 700,000, it is hardly common today, and most BU survivors are baggy and grade less than MS-63. I know that I do not see many even on the West Coast, which is to this day "Silver Dollar Country". This is a nice, bright original Choice BU example of this better date.

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, Choice Uncirculated
Year: 1890O
Condition: PCGS MS-64
Description: Far more difficult in this grade and above, due to typically indifferent strikes and excess marks. Although similar numbers are certified by PCGS at the MS-63 and 64 levels, the typical MS-63 is unattractive (the grading services seem to tend to give the 1890's O Mints a bit of a "mulligan" in this grade) - thus MS-64 graded coins carry a decent premium especially if attractive, as true Gems are expensive at well over $1000. The coin offered here is well struck for an 1890-O, and has bright original luster with grade-appropriate mild, scattered marks.
Price: $295.00

1890-O Morgan Dollar, Choice Uncirculated
Year: 1890O
Condition: PCGS MS-63
Description: Well struck for a commonly mushy date - not the "pancake" commonly noted by Wayne Miller. The Obverse is particularly well struck, the Reverse a bit less so although the Eagle show better definition than most. Oddly enough, this side does show a bit of weakness at the base of the Eagle's chest, creating a "bellybutton" effect. Otherwise a bright original Choice BU coin, and far nicer than several I noted offered elsewhere.
