Special Prices on three Very Special Coins:
*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.
*1894 Morgan Dollar, PCGS MS64+, CAC. This coin possesses beautiful
cream-white luster and a razor-sharp full strike. There are very few
marks on a coin that must have just barely missed a Gem grade from PCGS.
The 110,000 mintage is the second lowest business strike just behind the
1893 S Morgan Dollar. Ex JMD Collection (my personal collection.)
