Varieties:
The mintmark on this date is sometimes seen punched over a prior "S".  This variety is scarce in Mint State and none have been graded by PCGS in Gem condition or as a Prooflike or Deep Mirror Prooflike.

Notes:
The 1882-O Morgan Silver Dollar is common in Uncirculated condition but becomes scarce in Gem condition.  Prooflikes and Deep Mirror Prooflikes are scarce, but available.  The most common Uncirculated grade is MS-63, followed by MS-64.  The finest examples certified by PCGS are a single MS-68, a single MS-66 Prooflike, and a single MS-66 Deep Mirror Prooflike.

The finest "O/S" examples graded by PCGS are 138 MS-64's.

The finest "O/S Weak" examples graded by PCGS are 17 MS-64's.
