An 1881-S Morgan dollar, graded MS-66 with CAC sticker was sold for $21,150 on 25th January. Vibrant, rainbow-toned Morgan silver dollars are always popular in the world of numismatics. The reverse is untoned while the obverse has a textile texture. This indicates that the coin was in a canvas bag for a long time. Experts believe that the toning is original and not artificial.
