1886-O New Orleans Morgan Silver Dollar Extra Fine. In 1886, the New Orleans Mint struck nothing but Morgan silver dollars. Relatively few seem to have been kept in storage or a phenomenally higher proportion were lost in later melts. Today, just 1% of the issue's mintage is estimated to remain in any condition. That's a very low survival rate and it greatly affects value; you'd pay four figures for a mint-state specimen! Our Extra Fine quality features sharp details with light wear at the highest points.
1892-O New Orleans Morgan Silver Dollar Extra Fine. Morgan silver dollar production reached its peak in the 1880s and had severely declined by 1892. A relative scarcity for the date is this 1892-O Morgan, whose 2.7 million mintage was the lowest New Orleans Mint output in the series up to that date. Years later, vast numbers fell victim to government melts during the world wars. BU quality sells for $625 and even next-step-down AUs are pricy, which makes this sharply detailed Extra Fine quality a great bargain.
1934-D Denver Peace Silver Dollar Extra Fine. The Congressional quota for Peace dollars was reached in 1928 and production was suspended. Six years later in the depths of the Depression, minting was resumed. The 1934-D Peace silver dollar was the last of just five Denver Mint issues in the entire historic series, and it's the second scarcest D-mintmark Peace dollar. As few as 4% of the original mintage is estimated to exist today in the Extra Fine quality we offer or higher grades. You'd pay over three times as much for BU quality.
