Much about the 1901 Morgan dollar is an anomaly within the series.  They are quite rare in strict mint state when compared to circulated specimens, even in AU.  They are typically poorly struck with bad luster and heavy bag marks, and several dies show signs of failure from fatigue (see [[1901-P VAM-20|VAM 20]] as a good example).  The average grade of mint state coins at PCGS is below 62, whereas for 1900 and 1902 it's almost 64.  As a result, most collectors are happy with a somewhat attractive AU, which is a bit of a win for an issue that's usually unattractive.  Prooflikes are almost non-existent, with fewer than 10 between PCGS and NGC, and a few more if some AU coins with PL fields are included. There are several varieties of interest to collectors, most notably the ''Top 100'' [[1901-P VAM-3|VAM 3]], with a strongly doubled reverse. Other popular doubled dies include the ''Hot 50'' [[1901-P VAM-5|VAMs 5]] and [[1901-P VAM-16|16]], with a doubled ear, and ''Hit List 40'' [[1901-P VAM-7|VAM 7]] with a doubled reverse.

Much about the 1901 Morgan dollar is an anomaly within the series. They are quite rare in strict mint state when compared to circulated specimens, even in AU. They are typically poorly struck with bad luster and heavy bag marks, and several dies show signs of failure from fatigue (see VAM 20 as a good example). The average grade of mint state coins at PCGS is below 62, whereas for 1900 and 1902 it's almost 64. As a result, most collectors are happy with a somewhat attractive AU, which is a bit of a win for an issue that's usually unattractive. Prooflikes are almost non-existent, with fewer than 10 between PCGS and NGC, and a few more if some AU coins with PL fields are included. There are several varieties of interest to collectors, most notably the Top 100 VAM 3, with a strongly doubled reverse. Other popular doubled dies include the Hot 50 VAMs 5 and 16, with a doubled ear, and Hit List 40 VAM 7 with a doubled reverse.
