***Auction Highlight*** 1879-o FINEST KNOWN! Morgan Dollar $1 Graded ms67 By SEGS. HIGHLIGHT OF THE YEAR - Up for Auction is the Single Finest Known 1879-o, not TIED, THE SINGLE FINEST. None other have ever graded ms67. This coin has long been held in a private collection in New Hampshire, never having been graded, until just before this auction. No other 1879-o has ever risen to this lofty grade, and the example at hand deserves it. In A Guide Book of Morgan Silver Dollars, fifth edition, Dave Bowers does not even mention MS66 examples of the 1879-O. Rather, the silver dollar authority writes: "MS-64 coins are scarce, and in proportion to the demand for them, MS-65 pieces are rare. ... Bag marks are a huge problem." The Premium Gem population is so small that most collectors will never be able to acquire such a coin. No 1879-O Morgans are known finer.This dazzling MS67 coin is at the top of the Condition Census and is truly about as close to perfection as a Morgan can get without crossing that landmark border to 68. We have previously handled a small number of Premium Gems but none above ms65+, making this piece the sole finest that we have ever offered or anyone has ever offered. The strike is sharp, and the luster is frosty and brilliant -- unusual characteristics for an O-mint Morgan that make the 1879-O a favorite issue from this mint. The advanced Morgan collector simply cannot do better than this very coin. Sandi and I take great pride in being able to bring this to you and we wish you great luck. We have given you the only 3 ms66+ to have ever come to auction. Please note the reason ours is an ms67, it should be obvious in comparing the 3 ms66+ coins A Corey's Pick, Bid to Win, Don't let it get Away, you might not find its equal Coin. I give this coin my highest recommendation
