Description & Analysis

After the repeal of silver-purchase and coinage legislation in 1893, the previous torrent of Morgan dollar production became more like a trickle, and even though production recovered somewhat in later years, most issues did not reach the mintage heights of yesteryear. Just 20 years before the striking of this 1900-S dollar, San Francisco struck more than 20 million Morgan dollars between 1880 and 1881. By the turn of the century, however, that figure was down to just over 3.5 million pieces, and even that figure was comparatively high against issues such as the 1893-S or 1895-S. Production quality was also down, with commentators noting the decrease in quality for strikings and luster in the later years.

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
