1904 Morgan dollars are considered to be a scarce date, marking the last few months of production of Morgan dollars in Philadelphia under the Sherman Act. The mint went out with a whimper, producing dull, lackluster coins with mediocre strikes that, tend to have rough surfaces -- a far cry from the high quality coins produced in 1903. Using PCGS population reports, the average grade of a 1904 is nearly a full point lower than the average 1903. Cherrypicking and patience are required to get a coin with good luster, strike, and eye appeal. Prooflikes are extremely rare and without contrast. Varieties are mostly uninteresting, with only some minor doubling observed and the spiked 1 on the date punch (VAMs 3, 4, 10).
