Description & Analysis

During the early 1960s, countless bags of 1885-O Morgan dollars were released from the Treasury, and today, Mint State examples are plentiful, being among the most common of all Morgan silver dollar issues. However, most are at the lower levels of Mint State, and the certified population drops dramatically above MS65.
