Amazing PR68 Ultra Cameo 1896 Dollar
A Full Realization of the Date's Potential
1896 $1 PR68 Ultra Cameo NGC. Over the decades, the proof Morgan dollars of 1896, along with those of the following two years, have acquired a wholly deserved reputation for excellent eye appeal and overall quality. Perhaps the most elegant summation of the issue's traits comes from Wayne Miller's work, The Morgan and Peace Dollar Textbook. In his entry for the proof 1896 issue, he wrote: "The proofs from 1896-1898 evidence the most awesome cameo contrast of any of the proof Morgans. Special care seems to have been taken during these years to maximize the depth of the mirror fields, and the whiteness of the devices."
This specimen is a full expression of the issue's magnificent potential. Just a trace of champagne patina visits the obverse rims, and the fathomless fields are otherwise untoned. The meticulously struck, richly frosted devices combine with the mirrors for spectacular contrast that would make this coin stand out in any environment. In sum, this is a stunning coin, a true exemplar of the date that would be a credit to any collection. Census: 6 in 68 Ultra Cameo, 2 in 69 Ultra Cameo, 1 in 69 Ultra Cameo (8/11).(Registry values: N7079) (PCGS# 97331)
