About this set: BOTBOTW: (1878-1921) The San Francisco mint has been and continues to be one of the most "High Profile" mints in the U.S. treasury. Gold and silver coins as well as bullion traveled by trains, ships, and stagecoach in the early years of its operation. Many of the "Famous" coins ever struck came from the San Francisco mint such as the 1893-S Morgan dollar and other scarce denominational coins as well. In this set you will see several coins that hold the distinction of being a "One of a Kind" coins (12) now graded this low. A remarkable accomplishment in such a short set. The last five "S" PO01s to be added in this set was the elusive 1878-S PO01 a non VAM coin, the 1879-S Rev78 PO01 a remarkable discovery coin. Next was the 1890-S PO01 becoming the first of the 1890s PO01, and next was the 1884-S PO01 recently discovered and graded on (05/01/2012). The 1879-S Rev78 PO01 was a major find that was overlooked for years. At first glance it was thought to be just a plain 1879-S Morgan dollar. After seeing the arrow feathers it became clear that what was found was actually the 1879-S Rev78 PO01 and PCGS graded this coin on 05/10/2012. This next coin to make a splash and open up the twentieth century is the 1900-S PO01 PCGS graded 06/12/2011 with its near "Basal" PO01 grade. Lots of history and stories can be said about the coins minted from the San Francisco mint. This set has a great selections of some of the finest graded Low Ball Morgan dollars ever assembled into one set being represented. Lots of stories and interesting twists & turns each one of these coins can tell about. Thank you for your interest in this truly unique low ball set. Posted: 04/26/2012 - Last update: 11/02/2012
