Catalog Notes for 1883-O $1 MS: Though this isn’t a rare date in the absolute sense, demand is strong for O-mint Morgan dollars. There’s no exceptions here, with the 1883-O Morgan enjoying a steady stream of buyers for examples in all available grades. It’s a common enough issue in the circulated grades and lower MS levels, though as with most O-mint Morgans the strike isn’t necessarily excellent on all examples, and thus these become tough in the Gem level, where strike intensity becomes a key grading factor. Remarkably, a tiny handful grade above MS67, and these are coveted among registry set collectors. PLs are scarce and DMPLs are even scarcer, with both proving extremely tough in the Gem levels.

About CDN Prices:
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.
All CDN prices are based on proprietary market knowledge and technology developed by CDN Publishing, LLC. Have an opinion on this item? Send pricing feedback to pricing@greysheet.com
