Description:The Ultimate Morgan Silver Dollar.

The 1893-S silver dollar has the lowest mintage of all Morgan Dollars issued between 1878 and 1921, and it is universally considered the key to the series in all grades.

This particular example is the finest known by two full grade points (and we consider the coin is still conservatively graded). When you first see the coin in-hand, you don't even consider it could be an 1893-S, due to the superior quality and eye appeal, not to mention the pristine fields and strong strike. It never touched the inside of Morgan dollar bag, nor was it housed in a paper bank roll back in the day. We picture the coin being struck by a careful Mint employee in San Francisco and handled with cotton gloves from that point forward.

This 1893-S has a long history in the world of coins, mostly with the numismatic family of Cornelius Vermeule, who himself, acquired it at the time of mintage, before passing through generations of the same family until it was finally sold by a New York firm for a record-breaking $414,000 in 2001. The coin was auctioned uncertified/raw, which is hard to believe in today's market for such a high value and important piece and was acquired by Morgan dollar expert Jack Lee. Counting the Vermeule family as one, there has only been four owners of this coin since it was minted almost 130 years ago.

GreatCollections is privileged to auction this historic coin, which we repeat is the ultimate Morgan dollar. It is certain to set a new record when the bidding ends on Sunday, August 29, 2021.
