Morgan $1 1878 1878
7/8TF Strong

Choice $715 New April 14! 7/8TF Strong Doubling, Brilliant Radiance, Vibrant Cartwheels, Peripheral Gold, Scenic Lakeview Collection. We open the newest Scenic Lakeview consignment release with an 1878 7/8TF example with brilliant radiance and vibrant cartwheels. By now everyone knows the story of how the original Morgan 8 tail feather design was altered to seven tail feathers. In actuality, bad eagles have ten to twelve tail feathers, so what was all the fuss about? This lot is the famous die making error with a 7TF hubbing over an original 8TF die. The separate hubbings are easily seen on the piece under 10x. Luster falls into the solidly frosted category with swirling cartwheels under a bright light. The thin peripheral gold arc enhanced the overall eye appeal. Overall, a choice example that is fairly priced. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.1 (2020-2024) holder.

Morgan $1 18788TF 1878-8TF

Gem $3250 Scarce in Full Gem, Mirrored Fields, Gorgeous Toning, First Class Eye Appeal. For those not intimate with the Morgan dollar series, the 8 Tail Feather variant was a hub die error as eagles do not have 8 tail feathers. Only 3/4 of a million were struck with the date being scarce in full gem. This Summer Baltimore new purchase certainly qualifies as a notable gem given the mirrored fields, sharp reflective luster, and gorgeous toning. The bright light visuals are eye catching including swirling cartwheels. If in the market for a truly special first year Morgan strike, please give this gem toner special attention.

This 1878-S example offers the classic obverse aquamarine, copper-gold, and blues on the obverse and delineated green and copper-gold on the reverse that could have paper origins.

Morgan $1 1886S 1886-S

Choice $575 New May 1! Historically Scarce San Francisco Date, Fresh CAC Approval, Lightly Mirrored, Untoned. Scenic Lakeview Collection. During the early 1900s, the 1886-S was one of the Morgan rarities in Mint State. Over time, a moderate supply of coins were released from San Francisco mint storage, thus increasing availability. There are suggestions that hundreds of thousands were melted under the 1918 Pittman Act provisions, thought never verified. This date remains scarce today with partially mirrored examples being known at the choice Mint State grades. This Scenic Lakeview offering exhibits a partially mirrored obverse, with the reverse less so. The primary focal area is minimally abraded given the conservative grade.

Original $850 Numismatically Interesting Date, Frosted Luster, Lovely Slider, Old Accugrade Holder. A slider AU 1896-O Morgan dollar with faint rub. This date is numismatically interesting given its availability in circulated grades with most Mint State survivors arriving from bag releases. According to Bowers, "nearly all pieces are poorly struck with average to poor luster. Many "slider" AU coins exist; these are sometimes sold as "Uncirculated." Bowers is spot concerning this newly consigned lot. The frosted luster is present from decent mint bloom. The center strike is weak at the ear and on the eagle's breast. Housed in a obsolete Accugrade holder that was copyrighted by Alan Hagar which began operations during 1984. Offers are welcomed.

The Scenic Lakeview has released this partially mirrored example that is housed in yellow label ANACS holder. Under a bright light, the fields are obviously mirrored though abraded with faint chatter and some hairlines.

This near-gem 1921 Denver struck Morgan dollar offers brilliant frosted radiance and dancing cartwheels. Bright light review is a pleasurable experience as the eye appeal is noteworthy. The "+" grade captures some chatter on Liberty's chin from a technical perspective otherwise this piece would be properly designated as a full gem. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 (2015-2020) holder.
Morgan $1 1921S 1921-S

Gem $875 New April 14! Final Year Issue, Creamy Frosted Luster, Gem Original, Scenic Lakeview Collection. The 1921 dated Morgan issue presents an interesting back story. Few were released upon issue, followed by the mintage being released at intervals between 1930 through 1950. Few original bags were saved. Obverse strike weakness is typical for the issue with many saved over the years. This date become more elusive at the full gem level as is the case for this Scenic Lakeview lot. The creamy frosted luster is immediately eye catching along with the light golden hues. Surfaces are unabraded and consistent with TPG grade. The center obverse strike is as noted by Bowers. Some would call the luster satiny as a side note. Worthy of being rated a gem. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.1 (2020-2024) holder.
Peace Dollars
Peace $1 1922D 1922-D

Gem $1100 New May 1! Gem Original, Attractive Peripheral Gold Toning, Scarce Grade, Scenic Lakeview Collection. Though having a mintage of 15 million, 1922 Denver struck Peace dollars become scarce with full gem certification. This attractively toned example has garnered an all important (+) designation for its peripheral gold toning and overall eye appeal. Luster falls into the frosted realm though the surfaces were struck from eroded dies. Under a bright light, the peripheral toning shifts to green that intermixes with the light copper-gold. A well preserved gem that is priced at the PCGS MS65+ price guide. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.1 (2020-2024) holder.
Peace $1 1922D 1922-D
VAM 4 Doubled Motto
Original $225 VAM 4 Doubled Motto, Brilliant Frosty Luster, Twin Lakes Collection. I don’t profess to be enlighted with respect to Morgan and Peace dollar VAMs. However, the doubling on the engravers initials and on (TR)UST is seen with my 10x loupe. Surfaces are strictly original with ample mint frost. Accurately graded due to some luster breaks on the center curls. Priced consistent with the PCGS price guide. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder with VAM-4 Doubled Motto attribution on label.

Choice $375 New April 14! Brilliant Frosted Luster, Vibrant Cartwheels, Typical Strike, Scenic Lakeview Collection. The Scenic Lakeview Collection release also brings Peace dollars to the price list. This 1923-S is a solid silver piece as graded. The luster is brilliant with spinning cartwheels that are just plan fun under angled lighting.

Peace $1 1926 1926

Gem $1900 New May 20! Challenging Grade, Granualar Frosted Luster, Swirling Cartwheels, Scenic Lakeview Collection. 1926 Peace dollar production dropped substantially from 1925 with less than 2,000,000 struck. This date remains readily in the lower Mint State grades while being challenging at the superb gem level. This Scenic Lakeview specimen exhibits granular frosted radiance which is most brilliant under a bright light. The cartwheels are vibrant and equally pleasing. Strike is typical for the series. Accurately graded and housed in PCGS Gen 6.1 (2020-2024) holder.
Peace $1 1926D 1926-D

Gem $2800 New May 20! Noteworthy Type Candidate, Undisturbed Luster, Frosted Radiance, Scenic Lakeview Collection. A readily available date in the Peace dollar series, the 1926-D is ideal for type when found fully struck. This new inventory addition would certainly "fit the bill" given its sharp radiance from granular mint frost and sold metal flow lines towards the peripheries. Under a bright light, I see a light gold patina that is consistent on both sides. The cartwheels are vibrant and pleasing. Surface preservation is consistent with the certified grade. Yet another quality release from the Scenic Lakeview Collection. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.1 (2020-2024) holder.

Choice $925 New April 16! Steely Radiance, Swirling Cartwheels, CAC Approved, Scenic Lakeview Collection. This 1927 Philadelphia strike has the right "pizazz" under a bright light as the steely luster is notable and welcomed. Also important with any large Mint State silver piece are the swirling cartwheels which this piece excels at. The obverse center strike is partial as is typical of the issue. Under a loupe and lamp, the lower obverse toning spots present golden hues. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.1 (2020-2024) holder with CAC approval.

Choice $550 New April 16! Near-Gem Presentation, Frosted Luster, Bold Strike, Scenic Lakeview Collection.

Peace $1 1927S 1927-S

Gem $1650 New May 20! Exceptional Eye Appeal, Intense Silver-White Luster, Vibrant Cartwheels, Scenic Lakeview Collection. This 1927-S "luster bomb" warrants a JUST BUY IT NOW recommendation, plain and simple… Much of the collecting fun for silver dollar sized coins in the generous amount of luster that appears under a bright light. Intense is a reasonable descriptor for this lot's radiance as eye appeal is clearly of a higher grade. With a 10x, some faint chatter is seen in the left obverse field along with a contact mark below the leftmost legend that explains the MS64 certified grade. If searching for a truly attractive example, this Scenic Lakeview Collection release should be considered. Housed in newer NGC holder with edge view insert.
