Three very special Dollars from my personal collection.
*1883 S Morgan Dollar, NGC MS-64, CAC. This is a distinctly beautiful coin with natural rose-gray toning spreading over the surfaces on both the obverse and reverse. The strike is pleasingly sharp. A conditional rarity in this grade. This would be a $40,000+ coin if MS-65 and in a PCGS or NGC holder. Ex JMD Collection, $6,900.
*1893 S Morgan dollar, NGC AU-58. This outstanding coin features steel-gray surfaces with deeper charcoal highlights in the protected areas. It was lightly circulated yet shows very few marks. Dreams are made of coins that look like this one. This issue represents the lowest regular mintage (100,000) in the series. Most numismatists would agree that the 1893 S is the most important key coin in the Morgan dollar series.
Ex JMD Collection. $42,500.
*1934 S Peace Dollar, PCGS MS-65+, CAC. A fabulous coin for a world class Peace Dollar set. The strike is remarkably sharp. The blast white luster jumps off the surfaces. It takes great effort to find the few trivial marks on the satiny fields. Monster quality. EX JMD Collection. $14,700.
