1895-O Barber Half Dollar NGC MS67

One of Only Two

With a mintage of more than 1.7 million half dollars, the 1895-O is available in a wide range of grades up to MS63 or even MS64. However, Gem or finer examples of this issue are important condition rarities and the top- grade coins rarely get credit for their importance to collectors. NGC has graded only 12 pieces MS65 or higher, including this and one MS67 Star-designated example, which are tied for the highest.

1895-O Morgan Dollar PCGS MS62+

This Rare Morgan is a Definite “Plus”

There are a great number of 1895-O dollars available in the range of Very Fine to low AU, but in Mint State the population thins out by an order of magnitude, with most of those coins in the lower Mint State grades of MS60 to MS62. In MS63 the 1895-O is rarity of great achievement to acquire. In his Guide Book of Morgan Silver Dollars, Q. David Bowers writes: “The 1895-O emerged as the single circulation-strike variety that is not known to have been a part of any Treasury releases via bags. … I have heard suggestions that from several dozen to a couple hundred Mint State coins came out of the Treasury Building in the early 1950s, but how they would grade today is anybody’s guess. Uncirculated coins of years ago are often classified as AU today. I have found no account or even a rumor of any being a part of the 1962 through 1964 Treasury release.” The one offered here is considerably more lustrous than seen in our images.

1895 Morgan Dollar PCGS/CAC PR64+

Gorgeous Frosted

Before you read about 1895 Morgan dollars, please note that contrary to what our images show, this coin is deeply mirrored, nicely frosted and attractively toned. Pictures aren’t always “worth a thousand words”! Now please proceed…An unremarkable mintage of 880 proof Morgan dollars was accomplished at the Philadelphia Mint in 1895, with the coins delivered in four batches throughout the year. Records show a tiny business-strike mintage of 12,000 examples was also produced, but no regular-issue coins have ever turned up in any collection. The fate of the 1895 business-strike Morgan dollars is one of the greatest mysteries in American numismatics. Prominent researchers, from Q. David Bowers to Roger W. Burdette, have offered ingenious theories about the missing coins, but conclusive evidence remains elusive. One theory suggests the circulation-strike coins were never actually struck and the mintage figures represent some kind of clerical error in the records. Another theory indicates the coins were struck, but all were subsequently melted, perhaps under the provisions of the Pittman Act in 1918. Whatever the truth may be, no business-strike 1895 Morgan dollars are known to collectors today, leaving the small supply of proofs alone to satisfy collector demand. Accordingly, the 1895 Morgan dollar is the rarest, most sought-after issue in this incredibly popular series.

1895 Morgan Dollar PCGS PR62

Brilliant Morgan King

In 1895, the Mint struck 880 proof Morgan dollars for distribution in the annual silver proof sets. However, unlike in other years, plans to strike circulation coins came and went with, at most, a brief “hurrah” that never even made it out of the Mint. Mint records indicate that 12,000 circulation strikes were made, but none have ever been known to collectors. It’s often debated whether the coins were actually struck (and later melted) or if their “coinage” was nothing more than an accounting error on the Mint’s books. Contemporary numismatists, such as the Chapman brothers, believed that no circulation strikes were ever produced. Modern research clouds the water on this point, but with no circulation strikes known, one inherent fact remains: the 1895 Morgan dollar is only known in proof format. And therein lies its status as the “king of the Morgan dollars.” This example is virtually color-free and (contrary to how it appears in our images) highly brilliant.
