1893-S Morgan Silver Dollar. AU-50 (PCGS). Retaining plenty of lively mint luster, this brilliant and overall sharply defined example is sure to have no difficulty finding its way into an advanced collection of Americas favorite silver dollar type. The 1893-S is an issue that needs no introduction in todays market, and its fame is such that its desirability transcends the Morgan dollar series. With only 100,000 pieces produced this is the lowest mintage circulation strike silver dollar of its type. While many of these coins were likely melted under terms of the 1918 Pittman Act, thousands were released into commercial channels. The latter probably happened no later than the earliest decades of the 20th century, for the typical example offered in todays market is well worn in grades such as Fine and VF. This is an above average circulated survivor whose significance is further enhanced when we consider the awesome rarity of this issue in Mint State.
