{{DateMintStats|mintage=9,185,000|pl=5/10 (less common)|dies=124 pairs|study=yes}}One of the common dates released by the millions along with 83-O and 84-O during the 1962 Treasury release, 1885-O can be easily found in all grades. Strike and luster can be an issue, so it's best to be choosy, especially given the availability. Deep mirror prooflike specimens are not as common as for 83-O or 84-O, although normal prooflike coins aren't difficult to find. It is common to find 85-O with embedded sawdust, as that is how planchets were dried at the mint. There is not much of major interest in terms of varieties for this date. Changing from the oval O to the round O mint mark seemingly eliminated a lot of repunched mint marks. There are a few minor repunched dates and one notable shattered obverse die ([[1885-O VAM-25A|VAM 25A]]). =Attribution Guides for The 1885-O Morgan Dollar='''1.''' [[1885-O Obverses]]<br />'''2.'''
