About 1879-S $1 MS Reverse of 1879 Morgan Dollars
In 1879, the US Mint struck Morgan dollars with two distinct reverses, one with a flatter breast and flat feather atop the arrows (Reverse of 1878 or Second Reverse) and another with a rounder breast and a slanted feather atop the arrows (Reverse of 1879 or Third Reverse). The 1879-S Reverse of 1879 is an extremely common coin in all circulated grades and well into the Gem range, with even MS67s showing up with regular frequency. Amazingly, this piece is available in MS68 and even higher grades though is considerably rare at that level. PLs and DMPLs are reasonably common through MS66 and MS65, respectively, and then becomes much more challenging in grades above that range.
About CDN Prices
All CDN prices are based on proprietary market knowledge and technology developed by CDN Publishing, LLC.
CPG® prices represent retail levels. Collectors should refer to CPG values as a starting place for their negotiations, or auction bid reference.
Greysheet/Greensheet prices are wholesale market levels for collectible coins/paper money intended to indicate what a dealer, or wholesale, buyer would pay for the described item in the specified grade. Greysheet/Greensheet represent "sight-seen" values based on a buyer's in-hand review. The actual value can be more or less than this depending on factors including eye appeal and market timing.
Bluesheet (NGC & PCGS) prices represent the highest sight-unseen offers to buy on dealer networks like CDN Exchange. In many cases, there are no active sight-unseen buy offers, so CDN looks to the recent lowest market values for such an item. For this reason, Bluesheet values typically represent the floor of the market for the specified item. CDN only tracks Bluesheet on certain items.
CAC prices are for U.S. coins that meet the standards of the Certified Acceptance Corporation. You can learn more about CAC on their web site.
