Stack's Bowers Auction August 2018 ANA U.S. Coins Auction Philadelphia, PA Aug-2018 Legendary 1893-S Morgan Dollar 1893-S Morgan Silver Dollar. AU-50 (PCGS). A conditionally scarce, aesthetically pleasing example of this fabled silver dollar issue. Untoned apart from wisps of pale gold iridescence, both sides retain plenty of original luster that is best appreciated as the surfaces dip into a light. Boldly defined in all areas save for at the central high points, this minimally circulated 1893-S is sure to have no difficulty finding its way into an advanced Morgan dollar set. The most desirable circulation strike Morgan silver dollar, the 1893-S boasts the lowest mintage of its type with a mere 100,000 pieces produced. This is the rarest issue in this series in Mint State, in fact, eclipsing even the famous condition rarity 1892-S. Most collectors have to settle for a well worn coin when it comes to the 1893-S and, indeed, thousands of coins are extant in lower grades through VF. About Uncirculated survivors such as this are scarce, especially relative to the demand that they enjoy among advanced collectors. Given the extreme rarity of Mint State pieces, the present example is sure to see spirited bidding at auction. Provenance: From the Collection of Thaddeus A. Tatum III. PCGS# 7226. NGC ID: 255U.
