1921 $1 MS65 NGC. From a mintage of more than 44 million coins, the 1921 Morgan dollar represents the final issue in the series. Production resumed after a 17-year hiatus, with the Mint using new, slightly modified, low-relief hubs. The 1921 issue tends to be overlooked, but examples are scarce in higher grades, with populations dropping off dramatically in MS66. This lightly toned Gem exhibits pastel shades of ice-blue, violet, and peach-gold over each well-preserved side. The motifs are crisp, and tiny ticks occur on the portrait. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
