Description:
1890 Morgan Dollar, PR68 Cameo
Near-Perfect Surfaces, Sharp Contrast
1890 $1 PR68 Cameo NGC. This amazing Superb Gem proof example has full cameo contrast with highly lustrous silver surfaces surrounded by deeply mirrored fields. All design elements on both sides are sharply detailed. Both sides have bright silver surfaces with faint champagne toning limited to the extreme borders. This date is seldom encountered with significant cameo contrast. Dave Bowers noted in his Guide Book of Morgan Silver Dollars: "Above average strike for some, flat centers for others. Medium to low contrast. Better quality workmanship than in 1889, if only slightly."
The present example has above-average contrast and above-average strike, thus must be considered among the finer examples available in the marketplace. Just 590 proof dollars were struck in 1890, the lowest proof mintage of any date through 1904, with the single exception of 1878. Census: 4 in 68 Cameo, 0 finer (3/11).(Registry values: N7079) (PCGS# 87325)
