Notes:
"1900-O was a rare coin in 1991 and has remained so today. Often with a weak strike, this issue is very scarce in MS 65 and above. Due to its high value, several of the coins in the pop reports are probably resubmissions. This is one of our favorite dates in MS 64 and below, where we seldom see it."1

The finest examples graded by PCGS are 2 MS-66's.
