1893-S The King of All Morgan Silver Dollars

Key of Morgan Dollar Series Mintage 100,00 The 1893-S Morgan Dollar is recognized as the absolute key date of the series and has demand at all grade levels. This date  has the lowest mintage for a circulation strike of the series with just 100,000 minted. Unlike many other dates of the series, no hoards have ever appeared on the market, and it seems highly unlikely that any ever will. Most examples will be encountered in circulated condition, with a high concentration in VF. A very limited supply of mint state pieces are available. The finest known 1893-S Morgan Silver Dollar is a piece graded by PCGS as MS67, which sold by private-treaty for over a million dollars recently.

Coin of the Week May 6,2019

1851 New Orleans 3 Cent Silver Branch Mint Specimen Strike and Proof coinage represents the rarest of the rare in American numismatics. To understand just how special these coins really are, one must understand how coins were struck at Branch Mint facilities. The Branch Mints, including New Orleans, were set up for a commercial need. Philadelphia was the hub, and the other Mints just a spoke in the wheel. The hub (Philadelphia) made coins for commerce and to serve special collector interests, like making pattern coins and Proofs. The Branch Mints were designed for one need only, to produce coins to demand for the regions they were in. That is why one almost never hears of the existence of a Branch Mint Proof or Specimen … [Read more...]
