1883 Morgan Dollar. PCGS graded Proof 61. 1,039 struck. Well struck and untoned with some haziness and hairlines accounting for the modest grade. Sharp devices and a bold eagle. 1883 is another historic year in American history, for it witnessed the opening of the Brooklyn Bridge. One of the great engineering feats of the late 19th century was the building of the Brooklyn Bridge. The success of the venture was, in large measure, due to the Roebling brothers who made the gigantic cables that held up the roadway. One of them died in the construction work. Some time after the bridge opened in 1883, a deranged person on the span suddenly shouted that it was falling and several people were killed in the wild panic that followed (PCGS # 7318) .
Estimated Value $900 - 1,000.
The Cypress Estate.

Realized $1,265
