Stack's Bowers Auction November 2019 Baltimore U.S. Coins Auction Nov-2019 1880-S Morgan Silver Dollar. MS-68+ (NGC). Virtually pristine with outstanding visual appeal, this untoned beauty is sharply struck and bathed in intense mint frost. One of the quintessential type candidates in the Morgan silver dollar series of 1878 to 1921, the 1880-S is the most common of the early date issues in Mint State after only the 1881-S. Literally millions of the 8,900,000 coins struck remained in federal storage until released by the Treasury Department in the 1950s and, especially, the early to mid 1960s. Given their ready availability and the high standards of quality to which virtually all were produced, 1880-S dollars have been extremely popular with type collectors seeking a single Mint State coin to represent the Morgan dollar series. At the threshold of numismatic perfection, however, the example offered here is a noteworthy condition rarity. Indeed it is far better preserved than the vast majority of 1880-S dollars, the surfaces possessing equally superior eye appeal. For advanced numismatists who demand nothing less than the finest for their collections, the opportunity to acquire this exceptional Superb Gem should not be overlooked. NGC Census: 8; 5 finer in this category (all MS-69). PCGS# 7118. NGC ID: 2544. Click here for certification details from NGC.
