Morgan Dollar. 1895. PCGS graded Proof 62. This is the issue that every serious Morgan Dollar collector has to acquire at some point. Considered the "King of Morgan Dollars", the 1895 proof achieves almost cult status among the dollar collecting community, as well as the numismatic arena as a whole. The piece offered here is sure to receive attention from this aforementioned community as its' deep reflective fields and collectible grade make it a solid foundation for any collection.

Delicate chalky toning over white surfaces. Liberty's cheek and face display only a few light scratches and faint hairlines. A short nick on the bridge of the nose is a good reference for future identification and pedigree research. Additionally, to the left of the S in PLURIBUS is a shallow patch of hairline scratches. On the reverse, another small patch of scratches to the left of U in UNITED. All devices still retain original mint frost and this example boasts great eye appeal.

The 1895 proof has the lowest number of examples available for each respective grade than any other issue from the Morgan Dollar series. While superb gem examples might be a little more available than gem examples of another business strike issue, like an 1895-O, the chance to purchase a 1895 proof in any grade is a serious occurrence (PCGS # 7330) .
Estimated Value $28,000 - 32,000.

Realized $39,100
