Choice Proof Cameo 1921 Morgan Dollar
Rare Chapman Proof

1921 $1 Chapman PR64 Cameo PCGS. CAC. The Chapman proof Morgan dollars are believed to be the result of a clandestine transaction between coin dealer Henry Chapman and Chief Engraver George T. Morgan that took place late in 1921. The mintage is uncertain, with Walter Breen reporting 12 pieces struck, while Q. David Bowers estimates a production of 30 coins. The grading services have certified a surprisingly large number of examples, possibly due to resubmissions and crossovers.
The Chapman proofs are distinguished from their Zerbe counterparts by the deeply mirrored quality of their fields. This spectacular Choice example shows distinct elements of contrast between the reflective fields and the frosty devices, much like the Morgan dollar proofs of the 1890s. Only a few minor hairlines and contact marks are evident, with a few hints of light golden toning. This is the only Cameo Chapman proof certified by PCGS (6/11), further testimony to its incredible rarity and value.
From The Paul Taylor Collection of Proof Morgan Dollars. (NGC ID# 2579, PCGS# 87342)
