||1885 Morgan Silver Dollar. Proof-63 Cameo (PCGS). Stark contrast between frosted devices and chromelike fields is quite evident when the coin is held at a slight angle to the light; when the coin is held horizontally under the light, the diaphanous apricot and iridescent rose toning becomes visible. Struck from the VAM-5 die pairing featuring slight doubling at the bottoms of 85, this being one of two die varieties used to strike Proofs of this date that are made of 2 different obverses paired with a common reverse die. Here is a mid-grade Proof with decidedly strong eye appeal.
