Description & Analysis

The 1893-O Morgan dollar has the lowest mintage of any New Orleans Mint dollar in the series at only 300,000 pieces. Of course, a majority of those circulated or were jostled in bags, meaning there are few nice coins available today. The average mint state 1893-O Morgan ranges from MS61-63, and choice specimens are very rare. Gem examples are nearly impossible to locate. NGC has only graded a total of 3 in gem or higher.
