Description & Analysis

The 1894-O dollar is one of the most important condition rarities in the series, with only a few Gem pieces certified.

Today, there is great interest in high quality examples of this date, and most collectors understand the elusive nature of Gem or near-Gem specimens, although that was not always the case. The mintage was over 1.7 million coins, and an adequate supply of coins remained available into the 1960s, with many being unwanted due to the poor strike. Further from Bowers, in A Guide Book of Morgan Silver Dollars: 'Although few accounts exist of Treasury payouts of 1894-O dollars, the variety was not in great demand, possibly because of the poor appearance of most pieces, and thus market levels were low through the 1940s. In the early 1950s several bags surfaces, giving dealers an adequate supply. More were part of the Treasury release of 1962 through 1964, but interest remained apathetic.'
