Description & Analysis

The San Francisco Mint struck 9.25 million silver dollars in 1882. Many of those coins ended up sitting in bags stored in government vaults for decades before being released in the middle of the 20th century. These large releases have assured this date is one of the most common in high grade. In fact, NGC has graded over 1,700 examples in MS67! (11/2016)
