1882-O Morgan Silver Dollar. MS-67 (PCGS). The delightful satin surfaces of this Superb Gem are brilliant apart from wisps of the lightest iridescent gold. The strike is bold to sharp throughout with remarkably smooth surfaces for this issue. A gorgeous and essentially pristine example. The New Orleans Mint struck 6,090,000 silver dollars in 1882, most examples of which were either placed into circulation during the 19th century or remained in government storage until the Treasury Department releases of 1962 to 1964. With hundreds of thousands of coins coming out of hiding during the early 1960s, the 1882-O is widely regarded as one of the most available Morgan dollars in Mint State. Interestingly, however, this issue is scarce in MS-65 and rare any finer. As one of the highest graded examples known to PCGS, this upper end Superb Gem would be just right for an advanced Morgan dollar set. Just 3 have been certified finer through MS-68.
