1903 Morgan Dollar. NGC graded Proof 68. Lovely blue and gold toning on both sides. Most of the Proof Morgan silver dollars from the 1900s were produced in limited mintages declining from a high of 912 in 1900 to a low of 650 coins in 1904 in a steady progression. The 1903 date is at the lower end of this mintage range with just 755 Proofs minted. This is a lovely example with glistening mirrored fields around lighter "all brilliant" devices that typified the period. Both sides are delicately toned with pleasing shades as described much of which is in iridescent hues as the viewer turns the coin under a light. Astoundingly high grade for any Morgan dollar issue, there are no flaws or other surface distractions whatsoever. Although not enough contrast exists for a Cameo designation, this coin retains slight contrast to please the most ardent collector. Pop 4; none finer at NGC or PCGS.
Estimated Value $14,000 - 16,000.

Realized $25,300
