The U.S. Silver Dollar Encyclopedia estimates that as few as 178,000 BUs may survive from the 1881 Philadelphia Morgan dollar's original mintage of 9,163,000. That's less than 2% — and far fewer of those qualify for the premium grade we are offering. Our "near-gem" MS-64 quality boasts dazzling luster and beautiful near-flawless surfaces. Each coin comes in a protective transparent case with grade certification by NGC or PCGS. Next-step-up MS-65 quality sells for about $1000.
Certified coins should never be removed from their cases, and are not returnable once removed.
