Legend Rare Coin Auctions Auction The Regency Auction 30 Jan-2019 FROM THE STAR CITY CAC MORGAN COLLECTION. This is a very CHOICE AU example of this KEY DATE Morgan dollar. This coin is truly a special coin, worthy of inclusion in ANY Morgan dollar collection! Satiny luster clings wonderfully to the lightly worn surfaces. The wear is limited to traces of the most insignificant friction on the highest points. A pale gold and gentle silver iridescent look graces both sides. There is some softness of strike in the curls above Liberty's ear, as normal for the date. The eye appeal is well above average, with no signs of any post mintage problems that often plague even straight graded coins. As the financial crisis of 1893 ravaged the economy, the output of Morgan dollars dropped. The 1893-S had a series low mintage of 100,000, and is a KEY date in any grade. In high end AU grades, the date is RARE, and is extremely so in Mint State. PCGS 42, NGC 23, CAC 9. The last one to sell was in October 2018 and realized $38,400. The present example is nicer than that coin, and should bring a price closer to the current Collector's Universe value of $42,500. Keep in mind that an AU58 will cost double that! This is a coin of the utmost importance for the collector looking to add a very high end coin. Cert. Number 28900094 PCGS # 7226
