1896 PR68 Cameo Morgan Dollar
The Ultimate Proof Type Coin

1896 $1 PR68 Cameo NGC. There are two Morgan dollar dates from the 1890s that seem to consistently show better surface preservation and overall eye appeal than any others, 1896 and 1898. This piece was certainly the beneficiary of such preservation. As one might deduce from the grade, the surfaces are virtually perfect. Examination with a magnifier reveals a couple of thin diagonal slide marks on Liberty's cheek, but they have no effect on the overall presentation or grade of this magnificent proof dollar. The surfaces show pale golden patina throughout. The fields are deeply mirrored, with heavily frosted devices that show a two-toned contrast that is immediately evident to even the most casual viewer. A splendid and virtually unimprovable proof type coin. Census: 3 in 68 Cameo, 0 finer (6/11).
Ex: ANA Signature (Heritage, 7/2005), lot 10303; Long Beach Signature (6/2006), lot 2782; Long Beach Signature (5/2009), lot 1251.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 27ZT, PCGS# 87331)

It quickly became apparent to me that Heritage had a base from which it was able to draw serious and capable buyers.
