Owner's Comments

Featured on the front of the color brochure prepared by PCGS for the display of the Sunnywood Collection, this coin was chosen most often as the favorite in the set by collectors who visited the display. It was once dubbed "The Electric Rainbow Wonder Coin" by Morgan dollar specialist Michael Casper. Like the 1879-S, 1880-S and 1881-S dollars in the set, this spectacular coin is an exceptionally beautiful and technically superb example of what would otherwise be a common date San Francisco Morgan dollar. From the collection of our friend Gregg Bingham, who also happens to be a well-known former Houston Oilers middle linebacker, and a world-class coin collector. Gregg's "NFL Set" was one of the best collections of Morgans ever to be sold at auction (Heritage, FUN 2001), but this special "monster" was kept back by him and later sold privately to Sunnywood. The 1888-O in this set is also one of Gregg's "private monsters," while the magnificent 1892-CC was in his NFL Set.
