Legend Rare Coin Auctions Auction The Regency Auction 29 Nov-2018 What an engaging high end Proof Morgan! The grade could not be more spot on! Super deep mirrors beam forcefully from all over. The mirrors exhibit bold clarity, are super clean, and are so reflective you almost need Ray Bans on view the coin. You don't even have to twirl the coin to see the stunning "liquid mercury" like rolling of he mirrors. There is some light original golden brown toning around the rims and are some faint gold toning in the centers.This coin does have a silvery black and white cameo appearance. Miss Liberty and the details are thickly frosted and are fully struck. The eye appeal is tremendous! ONLY 500 were minted. PCGS 9, NGC 5, CAC 7. There are four graded PR64+ CAM at PCGS and we are highly suspect this coin has been in a few times seeking a PR65 designation. Examples of the 8 TF in PR64 and higher have so few auction appearances at all since 2004. Finding a PCGS CAC piece-impossible! In fact, the last PR64 Cameo (no +) Legend Numismatics sold, was in 2015 for $15,000 from a long time dealer who was buying it for his personal collection. This coin presents a welcome opportunity for any serious Proof Morgan collector to enhance their set. We know the price is fair-especially when you consider all the facts about how many have ever appeared! Cert. Number 84656500 PCGS # 87311
