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.

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.

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.

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, 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.
Price: $129.00

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.
Price: $249.00

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.
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.

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: Well struck & lustrous,a few small scattered marks - a more typical Choice BU for the date.

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

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.

1891-CC Morgan Dollar, Original High Grade Circulated Example
Year: 1891CC
Condition: EF-40+
Description: A totally original EF+ example of this popular Carson City Mint date. Not rare in whole terms, but very unusual to find a coin that has not been monkeyed with at some point, simply as AU's are worth almost 50% more, leading to greed (or stupidity) tempting someone, sometime to attempt to "improve" such a coin.
Price: $159.00

1892-CC Morgan Dollar, About Very Fine
Year: 1892CC
Condition: Choice Fine to Very Fine
Description: A solid mid grade example, just about a full Very Fine. Certainly most commercial dealers would call it that.
Price: $195.00

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, Choice Uncirculated
Year: 1892O
Condition: PCGS MS-63
Description: A scarce date in Uncirculated and scarcer still with a good strike. This is about average, showing the characteristic lack of definition on the Eagle's breast, but otherwise an original, flashy BU.
