1883-CC Morgan Dollar, Choice Uncirculated
Year: 1883CC
Condition: MS-63
Description: An original BU coin, equivalent to a certified sixty-three in my opinion. A splash of toning at the bottom half of the coin - this was obviously near the outer portion of the original bag it came from. Crisp, bright surfaces, other than the toned area of course, lustrous and totally problem free.

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.

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-S Morgan Dollar, Original Uncirculated Semi Key
Year: 1886S
Condition: MS-60+
Description: An original Uncirculated example of this Semi-Key Date, out of an old Dollar hoard. It shows some light scuffs which limit the grade below Choice, noted as common by Bowers. This is likely due to he fact that bags were not kept stored until the 1960's "bag rush", but dribbled out in the 1940's and '50's apparently many through Nevada casinos. The LaVere Redfield estate contained maybe 3 bags worth, and this coin bears a resemblance to coins known from that hoard, but that seems unlikely as it is not in a Paramount holder. Whatever, an attractive well struck coin in the MS-61 to 62 range.

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.

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, Scarce Near Gem Example
Year: 1888S
Condition: PCGS MS-64
Description: 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-CC Morgan Dollar, Very Good
Year: 1889CC
Condition: VG-8
Description: A nice original, problem free example of this Key Date. Difficult to find unimpaired, almost all specimens in lower grades seem to be damaged, cleaned or both. On sale for Christmas - treat yourself to a "stocking stuffer" to fill that pesky hole.

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.

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.

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: 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.

1894 Morgan Dollar, Extremely Fine
Year: 1894
Condition: EF-40
Description: A decent circulated example of this Key Date issue, still underrated compared to the 1893-S. While this displays attractive color and seems original at first glance, a closer look shows that this was lightly cleaned at one point. This must have been a LONG time ago, as most of the small quantities of coins released during the 1940's/50's that achieved circulation grade EF/AU and show obvious cleaning on light colored surfaces. Once larger numbers of this date were released in the later 1950's and after, they were saved and sold as Uncs. Circulated 1894-P's are therefore a bit unusual in that they are scarcer than Uncs, the Reverse of the 1893-S. Discounted for the cleaning, this is still a solid coin that should fit nicely into a high end circulated set, without the usual $1,500+ price tag. Guaranteed genuine, in perpetuity, however if you wish to get this certified, just let me know.

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-O Morgan Dollar, Original Almost Uncirculated Coin
Year: 1894O
Condition: AU-55+
Description: Attractive and with a good strike for a New Orleans Mint issue. Moderate multi-colored toning does not hide the obvious luster when you rotate the coin. Most coins I've noted in certified AU+ slabs, even in PCGS holders, have been obviously cleaned, likely to try to "squeeze" a couple of grade points out of them. Not a problem with this coin which has a shot a certifying AU-58 on a good day. I will note however that the majors seem to prefer "shiny" coins in that grade, even if they are not fully original (few are).

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".

1897-S Morgan Dollar, Prooflike Uncirculated
Year: 1897S
Condition: MS-61+
Description: An original Uncirculated coin with obvious weak Prooflike surfaces, fairly common for this date. As typical, the fragile surfaces shows some hairlines and marks from light handling or sliding around in a bag of coins. Some of the "lines" however that show on the image of the Reverse are clearly die polish lines, explaining the surfaces. Unfortunately, I could not get my camera to focus properly on the very reflective surfaces, so the extra images provided are a bit "fuzzy". Please be assured that the coin is not. Otherwise a nice BU Dollar.
