||Incredible Gem Proof 1898 Morgan Dollar
1898 Morgan Silver Dollar. Proof-67 Deep Cameo (PCGS).
A magnificent survivor from this limited Proof mintage, displaying pearlescent ivory-white centers and a blend of bronze and teal iridescence at the borders. The surfaces are virtually flawless, with Liberty's portrait rendered as if in marble, and the eagle's feathers essentially untouched. Rich, satiny luster blankets the devices, contrasting sharply with the watery and reflective fields. Breathtaking to view in-person and technically stunning.
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. This piece is among the finest known survivors, with only 6 coins graded higher by PCGS. For the advanced collector pursuing the most desirable representatives of the Morgan series or 19th Century type, this piece is an important opportunity.
PCGS Population: 14; just 6 finer through Proof-68+ Deep Cameo.
PCGS# 97333. NGC ID: 27ZW.
