1888-O $1 Morgan Silver Dollar, Scarface variety, PCGS MS62+
Do you enjoy going to the movies? Remember the over-the-top crime drama "Scarface" starring Al Pacino from 1983? How about the older version from 1932 of the same name? That version of "Scarface" starred Paul Muni. We at AUCM are pleased to present for your consideration a numismatic "Scarface" you can own: the 1888-O $1 Morgan dollar "Scarface" variety, graded PCGS MS62+. Rare and quite unique, this example would be a great addition to your coin collection.
David Bowers writes, "VAM-1B, called the 'Scarface' variety in The Top 100 Morgan Dollar Varieties, has a prominent die crack across Miss Liberty's face, called 'the most dramatic die break in the Morgan dollar series. Rare in all grades.' " Ron Guth tells us, "The 1888-O VAM 1B 'Scarface' variety is one of the most obvious, desirable, and valuable of all Morgan Dollar varieties. There was no question that this would be (and is) a Top 100 variety." On this example the die break begins in the hair at Liberty's neck, extends diagonally across her neck, then extends through her jaw and cheek across the bridge of her nose. Then it extends from her nose in the field though the dot between 'E' and 'PLURIBUS' and ends in the denticles at the rim.
