||The September 2011 Philadelphia Americana Sale
||1896-S Morgan Silver Dollar. MS-64 (PCGS). CAC. Fully brilliant and highly lustrous with strong cartwheel activity and exceptional eye appeal for the grade. Nicely struck. An elusive date in Choice Mint State or finer despite a mintage for the issue of five million pieces. Much of that production run saw heavy duty in commerce in San Francisco and the surrounding environs, the end result nearly innumerable circulated pieces in today's marketplace, but far fewer Mint State coins. Indeed, PCGS has certified fewer than five dozen examples of the date finer than the MS-64 coin offered here. A nice opportunity for an alert Morgan dollar collector.
