Description & Analysis

While hardly a common date, with a mintage of only 1,260,000 coins, the 1894-S is the most available date of the year, especially in higher grades up to MS65. However, in MS67 the story of availability is much different than it is in MS64 or MS65.

Dave Bowers calls the date a "numismatic delight" in A Guide Book of Morgan Silver Dollars. He continues: "Most are well struck, lustrous, and pleasing to the eye. In MS-63 and MS-64 grades, examples will fit into a high-quality collection. MS-65 coins are difficult to find and justifiably more expensive." There are no unusual varieties reported for the date, with six different minor varieties recorded in the VAM reference. The only distinctive variety has a die scratch or crack on Liberty's eye.
