Impressive P. Hall Morgan Dollar Collection at GreatCollections

The PCGS-graded collection is mostly graded MS65 with many key dates

A husband-and-wife team from the East Coast quietly collected an impressive collection of Morgan Dollars over the past decade, all graded by PCGS and mostly graded MS65. The collection has a PCGS Price Guide value exceeding $750,000 and includes over 110 different dates/mint marks with many key dates. The 1895 Proof, included in many business-strike collections, is graded PCGS PR65+DCAM.

The P. Hall Collection is currently being auctioned unreserved by GreatCollections. Bidding ends on half of the collection on Sunday, June 28 and the other half on Sunday, July 5.

Aside from the key 1895 Proof Morgan Dollar, other impressive pieces include the 1882-O/S Strong Morgan Dollar, graded PCGS MS65, ranked as one of the three finest examples ever graded by PCGS.

Carson City-minted coins are well represented, with both versions of the 1879-CC graded PCGS MS65. The Capped Die variety is rarely seen graded so high. Of the key dates minted in San Francisco, the 1883-S graded PCGS MS65 stands out, alongside the 1884-S condition rarity, graded PCGS MS63. In the 1890s, there are several key issues including the 1894-O graded PCGS MS65, the 1895-O graded MS63, and the extremely rare 1897-O graded MS65.

Ian Russell, president of GreatCollections said, “The owners of this collection spent considerable time putting it together and aimed for a uniform look – white and no distracting marks or hits on the coins. The result is an amazing collection that we are privileged to offer in our auctions.”
