It's the 130th Anniversary of this coin, and it sure does have a unique story to tell. The 1891-O Morgan Dollars have the unique distinction of having been made from silver that was taken possession of through three different laws: The 1878 Bland-Allison Act, the 1890 Sherman Silver Purchase Act, and the 1891 Trade Dollar Re-coinage Act. There is no record of die usage from these acts, so it is not possible to make individual attributions to each coin today. However, Mint records show that 3,534,616 1891-O dollars were struck from reclaimed bullion! And yet, only 800,000 of these coins are estimated to have survived into the modern era.
These coins were graded by NGC as MS62, and are colloquially dubbed "The Lone Survivor" coin. Add this unique find to your collection, as quantities are severely limited!
