1888-S Morgan Silver Dollar. MS-65 (PCGS). CAC. This lovely Gem Uncirculated dollar is boldly to sharply struck overall with a fresh, brilliant appearance. The 1888-S is one of the scarcer Morgan dollars of its era, due primarily to a mintage of 657,000 pieces. For unknown reasons, silver dollar production at the San Francisco Mint remained low during to mid to late 1880s as the Philadelphia and New Orleans mints accounted for the vast majority of examples struck. While numismatists will have little difficulty locating a BU or Choice survivor of this issue, Gems in MS-65 are elusive, especially with the quality and eye appeal offered here. From the Larry H.
