U.S. Morgan Silver Dollars 1899, 1900, 1901, & 1902-O Morgan Dollars, Certified MS-64
|Item Number: 46689|
|U.S. 1899-O New Orleans Morgan Silver Dollar, MS-64. Most Morgan dollar issues of the New Orleans branch mint are not singled out for unusual minting excellence, but this 1899-O issue is cited for especially attractive luster. Of those surviving in mint-state quality, relatively few qualify for "near-gem" MS-64 grading, with burning luster and near-flawless surfaces. Overall, just 1% of the mintage is estimated to exist in MS-64 or higher grades. The transparent protective "slab" shows the grade certification by the Numismatic Guarantee Corporation or the Professional Coin Grading Service. |
U.S. 1900-O New Orleans Morgan Silver Dollar, MS-64. This first New Orleans Mint Morgan dollar issue of the century was produced during the waning years of the venerable Southern institution. The vast majority of this issue were held in U.S. Mint and Treasury vaults, and then lost forever in later government melts. Compared to some earlier O-Mint Morgans, the 1900-O issue is relatively scarce today in BU quality. And "near-gem" specimens like these MS-64 issues are even tougher to find. To qualify for MS-64 grading a coin must have burning near-gem luster and be close to free of surface flaws on both sides. Transparent "slab" with official grade certification.
U.S. 1901-O New Orleans Morgan Silver Dollar, MS-64. Weighing scarcity against price, New Orleans Mint issues are relative bargains in the Morgan silver dollar series. Among 20th century Morgans, 1901 is by far the toughest date to find in mint-state quality. The total number of 1901 BUs surviving is less than half that of its closest competitor (the 1900 date). Of the three 1901 issues, only the O-mint New Orleans Morgan is still affordable in BU quality, with the "P" and "S" issues selling for four figures each. The impressive Morgans are housed in a transparent "slab" with official "near-gem" MS-64 grading from the NGC or the PCGS.
U.S. 1902-O New Orleans Morgan Silver Dollar, MS-64. Over five decades ago, the 1902-O Morgan was one of the key rarities in the Morgan silver dollar series. Then bags of them were discovered in the last major U.S. Treasury silver dollar releases of the 1960s and this coveted issue became affordable. Of those newly released mint-state coins only a few qualified for this impressive MS-64 grading, with dazzling luster and only subtle surface flaws. Each comes in a protective transparent "slab" with Numismatic Guaranty Corporation or Professional Coin Grading Service certification of the connoisseur "near-gem" grade.
