1890-O Morgan Dollar

Similar to the prior year issue from New Orleans, the 1890-O Morgan Dollar had a higher mintage, remains available in mint state grades, but can be elusive in gem grades and sharply stuck. Collectors searching for near gem examples should take time to find an example with an above average or sharp strike and minimum of distracting contact marks.

The mintage for this issue was 10,701,000 pieces. The highest numerical grade assigned by PCGS and NGC is MS66. Some coins at this grade level have been designated as ProofLike and carry a hefty premium. A single coin has been graded PCGS MS65DMPL.
