Description & Analysis

Quality Mint State 1901 Morgan dollars are extremely difficult to locate. Most of the mintage was either released into circulation at the time of issue or melted under the provisions of the Pittman Act in 1918. Very few business-strike 1901 dollars were saved by collectors, and the date was not represented in the Treasury releases of the 1960s. Today, most examples seen are in circulated grades, and coins that are technically Uncirculated are usually dull and unattractive. The issue is a prime condition rarity in the series, more challenging at the Gem level than any other date from the Philadelphia Mint, except the apocryphal 1895.
The paucity of high grade business strikes has always put significant pressure on the tiny proof mintage of 813 coins.
