Description & Analysis

Although the 1894-O Morgan dollar had a healthy mintage of over 1.7 million coins, weak strikes and poor luster plague this issue. Today, this issue is known as one of the major conditional rarities of the entire series. Any uncirculated example brings well into the 4 figures, and NGC has only graded a mere nine coins in gem.
