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.

1859-O Liberty Double Eagle NGC XF45

A Rare O-mint $20 Lib

The 1859-O is a rare New Orleans double eagle with a small 9,100-coin mintage. Perhaps only approximately 100 pieces are known in all grades, primarily distributed throughout the various XF and AU levels. Only two Mint State pieces are documented, both heavily bag-marked. The 1859-O shares its rarity with most other O-Mint twenties leading up to the outbreak of the Civil War. After the San Francisco Mint became operational in 1854, gold deposits in New Orleans declined significantly, and large denomination gold coinage plummeted. Between 1854 and the 1909, when the New Orleans Mint ceased coin production for the final time, fewer than 115,000 double eagles were struck at that facility.

1854-O Three Dollar Gold Piece NGC MS61

Very Rare Unc. O-mint

While 1854-D is a great rarity, more than a thousand 1854-O examples remain from the mintage of 24,000 pieces, typically in XF to AU grades. Mint State representatives are surprisingly rare, given the tendency of the public to set aside new designs and denominations during the introductory year of issue. In hand, this one is more of a yellow-gold than orange-gold color and much more lustrous than seen in our images. The NGC population is just 10 with 7 higher.

1892-O Morgan Dollar NGC MS66

Tied for Highest Graded

 The 1892-O Morgan was not well-produced and most examples seen are softly struck, with subdued mint luster. Some were released into circulation near the time of issue, making it readily available in circulated grades. However, most of the mintage was held in government storage and a large portion of the production escaped melting under the provisions of the Pittman Act. Still, at the Gem level, the issue becomes elusive, due mostly to its poor production, and finer examples are decidedly rare. Here for the taking is a pleasing, satiny, color-free representative. The NGC population is just 6 (including 1 star-designated example) with none higher.

1852-O Liberty Eagle PCGS AU58

Lustrous, Semi-PL

With their energies directed mostly toward the production of double eagles, New Orleans Mint officials struck a paltry 18,000 ten-dollar gold coins in 1852. In 2006, Doug Winter, who called this issue “one of the rarest No Motto eagles,” estimated 80 to 90 coins survived in all, including two to four Uncirculated coins. Today, NGC shows two in Mint State (one in MS60 and one in MS61) on their population report, while PCGS shows one in MS60, with none higher. The PCGS population is only 4 with 3 higher (two AU58+’s and the aforementioned MS60).

1899-O Barber Dime NGC MS67 Star

A Star is Born

The 1899-O Barber dime is neither one of the numerous low-mintage series issues produced to the extent of fewer than 1 million pieces, nor is it anyone’s idea of a key issue within the series for other reasons, given its typical O-mint production of 2.65 million coins. It is however, a conditional and strike rarity. By the time of its production in 1899, the series’ novelty — and fleeting it was — had completely worn off, and few collectors of the era set aside examples of any circulation strikes, regardless of mintmark or lack thereof. Angle your neck either far left or far right for a better view! Each side of this coin shows considerable cameo contrast. In researching it, we discovered that we had auctioned t in our April 2012, Central States sale, lot 5067.

1856-O Liberty Quarter Eagle NGC MS62

Mint $2.50 Rarity

The New Orleans Mint struck only 21,100 examples of the 1856-O quarter eagle, a denomination that was unloved and neglected in favor of the half eagle and (after 1849) the double eagle throughout much of its history. San Francisco, in only its third year of operation, also struck 1856-S quarter eagles for the first time since opening, and managed to best New Orleans by a margin of more than 3 to 1. Whether these comparative mintages were an early sign of the increasing decrepitude that would overtake the Southern mint by the early 20th century, or merely an indication of the continuation of the hard-money tradition of the Old West that began a few years earlier with the Gold Rush of 1849, is not readily known today. Nonetheless, 1856-O quarter eagles are quite elusive in Mint State. This is one of only four so-graded by NGC with none higher.

1879-O Morgan Dollar NGC MS66

Tied for Highest Graded 

After an intermission of nearly two decades since the Mint closed in 1861, New Orleans resumed coinage production in 1879, following terms of the Bland-Allison Act that Congress passed a year earlier. The year 1879 saw the production of 2,325 double eagles, the only coins of the Type Three design that were minted in Louisiana. The facility also coined 2,887,000 silver dollars. Other denominations were added in later years through 1909 when that Mint was permanently closed. Mint State 1879-O Morgan dollars are not particularly rare, although Gems are elusive and finer examples are rarely encountered. In hand, this specimen is lighter and brighter than seen in our images. The NGC population is only 11 with not a single representative graded higher.

1888-O Morgan Dollar NGC MS67

1 of only 2 So Graded

Here is a superb, attractively toned example of a true condition rarity. Its surfaces are satin-like in appearance and exceptionally well preserved. In hand, the patina is a bit lighter and the luster, somewhat brighter than seen in our images. Tied with just one other (which is ex-Eliasberg) for the highest graded by NGC. For its part, PCGS has graded just one MS67, with none higher. The aforementioned Eliasberg coin was last auctioned by us in 2014.
