Why add the 1899-O Morgan Silver Dollar PCGS AU53 Micro O to your collection?

This interesting 1899-O Morgan Silver Dollar was examined and graded About Uncirculated 53 (AU53) by Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS). The passing of the Bland-Allison Act of 1878 was orchestrated by mining interests in the West. After the discovery of the Comstock Lode silver mine, these miners needed a customer to buy the flood of silver coming from the mines. This customer was the U.S. Government. While the vast majority of the resulting Morgan Silver Dollars were eventually melted, some were stored in vaults of banks and the U.S. Treasury. This 1899-O issue was considered a rarity until the GSA sales of the sixties and seventies. It is difficult to find in uncirculated grades. The coin was struck at the New Orleans Mint on a .7734 oz. 90% pure silver planchet.

Anna Williams as Liberty

The obverse design depicts Liberty, as modeled by Philadelphia teacher Anna Willis Williams. The designer George T. Morgan regarded her profile as the most perfect he had seen. The reverse of the coin features the bald eagle. The "O" Mintmark appears below the eagle. This die variety is the small "O" as the attribution suggests.

Solidly Collectible Circulated AU53

AU53 is high quality circulated collector grade that features original surfaces and even wear over the devices. Overall a very attractive grade compared to more heavily circulated examples.
