This 1895 Morgan $ graded PCGS PR65+ DCAM is one of the highlights of the P. Hall Morgan Dollar Collection being auctioned at GreatCollections June 28.

June 18, 2020. Irvine, Calif. – A husband and wife team from the East Coast quietly collected an impressive collection of Morgan Silver Dollars over the past decade, all graded by PCGS and mostly graded MS-65. The collection has a PCGS Price Guide value exceeding $750,000 and includes over 110 different dates/mint marks with many key dates. The 1895 Proof, included in many business strike collections, is graded PCGS Proof-65+ DCAM.

The P. Hall Collection is currently being auctioned unreserved by GreatCollections. Bidding ends on half of the collection on Sunday, June 28 th and the other half on Sunday, July 5th.

Aside from the key 1895 Proof Morgan Dollar, other impressive pieces include the 1882-O/S Strong Morgan Dollar, graded PCGS MS-65, ranked as one of the three finest examples ever graded by PCGS.

Carson City-minted coins are well represented, with both versions of the 1879-CC graded PCGS MS-65. The capped die variety is rarely seen graded so high. Of the key dates minted in San Francisco, the 1883-S graded PCGS MS-65 stands out, alongside the 1884-S condition rarity, graded PCGS MS-63. In the 1890s, there are several key issues including the 1894-O graded PCGS MS-65, the 1895-O graded MS-63 and the extremely rare 1897-O graded MS-65.

Ian Russell, president of GreatCollections said, β€œThe owners of this collection spent considerable time putting it together, and aimed for a uniform look – white and no distracting marks or hits on the coins. The result is an amazing collection that we are privileged to offer in our auctions.”
