Lot 1641
1878. 8 tail feathers. PCGS graded MS-64. CAC Approved. VAM 21 Broken R & B. Lovely golden toning. The 1878 VAM-21 is an 8 tail feather coin with the A2/Axd reverse. The name of this variety refers to features on the obverse, which it shares with the 7/8 variety 1878-P VAM-43. However, its reverse is unique to this VAM, being primarily distinguished by a doubling down of the N in ONE and a pit or chip to the lower left of the O in ONE (PCGS # 133822) Estimated Value $900 - 950

1879-S. Reverse of 1879. PCGS graded MS-65 Deep Mirror Prooflike. A blazing white DMPL. Housed in an Old Green Holder. Pop 150; 54 finer, 46 in 66, 8 in 67. (PCGS # 97093)
Side Note: DMPL (Deep Mirror Prooflike, or "dimple" for short) coins are regular Morgan Dollars that were struck for circulation but have unusually frosted legends and devices and very reflective, mirror-like, fields on both the obverse and reverse. There are coins that are heavy DMPL, meaning that they are very frosted/mirrored, and coins that are light DMPL, meaning they are not completely frosted/mirrored. Such coins occur most frequently during the pre-1883 run of San Francisco dollars. They are often worth considerably more than a typical lustrous coin by the same grade. (Morgan dollars which have surfaces that are reflective but are not deeply mirrored enough to qualify for the Deep Mirror Proof Like designation are called simply "Prooflike." Prooflike coins also carry a premium over Morgan Dollars with non-reflective surfaces.). Estimated Value $800 - 900

1883-CC. NGC graded MS-67. Lovely rainbow toning graces the obverse surface. Sharply struck throughout with excellent silvery luster in the areas which did not receive Nature's toning. No need to worry about an unsuccessful strike left by the rebound of the dies that coined this handsome CC Mint Morgan Silver Dollar, since even a cursory examination of the piece reveals nice clarity of detail, including the centers. We doubt if many could come a mile and a half of this nearly perfect MS67 specimen in terms of originality and color. And it wouldnt surprise us to see a splendid spirit of confidence animating the bidders. Pop 126; 12 finer, 7 in 67 Star, 4 in 67+, 1 in 67+ Star. (PCGS # 7144) Estimated Value $3,000 - 3,300

The surfaces are superb, indeed, exquisite, and absolutely without a flaw. This combination of a superb gem Proof with toning originality means that few can have been certified.

1892-CC. NGC graded MS-63. The strike on this issue is nearly always somewhat problematic centering on Libertys ear, and the present MS63 is no exception. The obverse is vibrant with silvery white frostiness, however. Struck with exactitude elsewhere by the dies, in the cap and hair outside of the few strands above the ear, for instance, as well as on the eagles wings, etc. A desirable CC mint issue (PCGS # 7214) Estimated Value $1,450 - 1,500

1892-S. NGC graded UNC Details. Improperly cleaned. Needle sharp within fully defined breast feathers. Light antique toning rests about the borders on both sides. A light mark appears before the ear and some faint hairlines appear under strong magnification under a light source.

Only 1.2 million Morgan Silver Dollars were made at the San Francisco Mint in 1892, and nearly all of these went into circulation. The mintage itself makes for a curious tale, since each and every month of the year saw exactly 100,000 coins minted. One can only guess why. Occasional Mint State would be found with other dates, but apparently not even a single bag of Mint State 1892-S dollars have been discovered since the late 1920s, when a bag (or possibly more) was paid out at the San Francisco Mint according to rumors. Few cared back then. Now it would make nationwide headlines in the mainstream press (PCGS # 7218) Estimated Value $5,000-UP
