1895 Morgan Dollar. NGC graded Proof 63. Light even golden toning. Popular key date Morgan Dollar. This lightly toned example displays uniform reflectivity as the surfaces are tilted and viewed under incandescent light. And what a thing of beauty it is to behold! Choice throughout, and glittering, meanwhile the strike is typically sharp for the issue with hair curls over Liberty's ear that are virtual fully distinct. Warm even champagne-gold overtones allow the underlying surface to shine through the otherwise medium gray color scheme, features that explain why grade-limiting hairlines are obscured even when viewed close-up. We shall probably never know for certain what became of the business strike 1895 Morgan Dollars, not a single example has ever been authenticated. As such, the Proof of this year 1895 is regarded as the "King of the Morgan Dollars." This is a specimen issue that all date and mint collectors must pursue for the sake of completing their sets. The Proof 1895, therefore, enjoys unflagging popularity and no doubt will far into the future. Estimated have it that perhaps 700 pieces are extant in all grades from an original mintage of 880 coins. A desirable highlight of this sale, and one of the most significant Morgan Dollars that any collector will acquire. Only 880 Proofs minted. Pop 35; 114 finer. (PCGS # 7330) .
Estimated Value $33,000 - 36,000.
