Stack's Bowers Auction November 2017 Baltimore U.S. Coins Auction Nov-2017 Ex. HC Jan. 2013 Lot 6063 Rare Gem DMPL 1879-O Dollar Just One Finer at PCGS 1879-O Morgan Silver Dollar. MS-65 DMPL (PCGS). The fields of this incredible Gem are deeply mirrored and icy, sharply contrasting the design elements blanketed by dense and frosty luster. Impressively rendered, the hair over Liberty's ear is as intricate as one could desire, matched by strong definition to the eagle's breast feathers on the opposite side. Handsomely preserved and delivering stunning eye appeal throughout. Production of the 1879-O Morgan dollars marked the reopening of the New Orleans Mint following the Civil War. Struck to a quantity of nearing 2.9 million examples, this issue is readily available overall, but remarkably scarce with prooflike qualities. The present example rests near at the pinnacle of grades assigned by either of the top two grading services, with only two examples graded at this level by PCGS, and only a single example finer by a plus designation. PCGS# 97091. NGC ID: 253V. PCGS Population: 2; 1 finer (MS-65+ finest) Provenance: From the Magnolia Collection.
