1889 Morgan Dollar NGC MS67

 1 of 5, None Higher

A substantial mintage of 21.7 million Morgan dollars was accomplished at the Philadelphia Mint in 1889, making the issue readily available in lower Mint State grades. However, many examples seen were struck from overused dies and high-grade specimens with a sharp strike are not at all plentiful. At the MS67 grade level the 1889 is a prime condition rarity. In fact, this is one of only five so-graded at NGC, with none higher. This particular example is more vibrant and colorful, when viewed in-hand.

1879-CC Capped Die Morgan Dollar PCGS MS65

Rare CC $1

A Top 100 Variety. The Capped Die 1879-CC dollar has long been known, but decades ago, they were shunned by collectors who thought something was not quite right about the mintmark area. Scholarship has made great strides since those days, and now the so-called Capped Die coins are worth a premium in the better grades of Uncirculated. The one offered here is noticeably lighter, as well as more lustrous and appealing, than seen in our drab images. The PCGS population is only 11 with 5 (barely) higher, as all of the latter are 65+ examples.

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.

1883-CC Morgan Dollar PCGS MS68

Tied for Highest Graded 

Late in 1962, the coin collecting hobby was turned upside down when the U.S. Treasury began releasing silver dollars through banks and directly to collectors and dealers. Few Carson City dollars were among those pieces distributed in the 1960s. A decade later, the government’s G.S.A. again put the coin collecting hobby in a frenzy with the sales of Carson City dollars. The Carson City Mint produced 1.2 million Morgan dollars in 1883, and most of those coins remained in storage for several decades until they were released through the GSA sales of CC Morgans in the 1970s.Those coins were transported and stored loosely in bags of 1,000 coins each, so few were preserved in ultra-high grades. PCGS has certified more than 46,000 submissions of the 1883-CC since they began operations in 1986. Of all those coins they have examined, only six pieces have been graded MS68, and none higher. The one offered here is frosty and virtually white, with exceptionally well-preserved surfaces.

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.

1891-S Morgan Dollar NGC MS67

None Higher at NGC – Frosty-White

In the 2014 reference Morgan Dollar, Michael Standish writes: “John Love recalls five bags full of low-grade Uncirculated 1891-S Morgans being part of LaVere Redfield’s hoard of silver dollars.” This corresponds to the moderate availability of this date through MS64. In Gem condition, however, the 1891-S emerges as a better date among San Francisco Morgans, and in MS66 it is genuinely rare. At the MS67 grade level, there are only 4 so-graded by NGC, including the present example.
