||Exciting Deep Cameo Proof 1898 Dollar
1898 Morgan Silver Dollar. Proof-64 Deep Cameo (PCGS). CAC.
This is an exceptionally attractive coin for both the type and assigned grade that is sure to sell for a strong premium. Untoned on the obverse, the reverse exhibits only the lightest pale gold iridescence. Both sides allow ready appreciation of intense cameo contrast between frosty, razor sharp devices and deeply mirrored fields. Otherwise a Proof-65 DCAM, if not finer, a couple of wispy handling marks on Liberty's cheek are all that justify the Proof-64 numeric grade from PCGS. Along with the 1896 and 1897, the 1898 is one of the most consistently well produced and attractive Proofs in the Morgan silver dollar series. A total of only 735 such Proofs were struck, the vast majority of which are either lost, impaired, or rendered clearly inferior to the presently offered coin. For the discerning collector pursuing a superior quality representatives of the Morgan silver dollar series, our offering of this piece is a significant opportunity.
