Description & Analysis

Wayne Miller once wrote concerning the 1890-O, "this date is a close runner-up to 1891-O in the contest for the 'Pancake of the Morgan series' title."

The 1890-O Morgan dollar issue is one that is available at the Gem level, although such pieces are far more (about 7x) elusive than their near-Gem counterparts.
