Special Prices on three Very Special Coins:
*1890 S Morgan Dollar, PCGS MS66+, CAC. Extremely well preserved coin.
Great strike and no marks of any significance. Both obverse and reverse
have outstanding and beautiful toning with light gold at the center which
developes into neon blue at the rims. PCGS has only graded seven coins
finer than this example. Ex JMD Collection (my personal collection.)
*1893 CC Morgan Dollar. PCGS MS-64. Flashy blast white luster and a
great strike on this near-gem scarce date dollar. The Carson City Mint
had a short 23 year span of operation with 1893 being the final year.
667,000 CC dollar coins were minted during this final year of
production and most saw heavy circulation. The majority of the
surviving mint state specimens were poorly struck and/
or heavily bag marked. Only 12 coins have graded numerically higher at
PCGS. Ex JMD Collection. $18,500.
S Morgan dollar, NGC AU-58. This outstanding coin features
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.
JMD Collection. $42,500.
