    1879 Morgan Dollar, MS65+
    Cameo-Contrasted Deep Mirror Prooflike

    1879 $1 MS65+ Deep Mirror Prooflike PCGS. CAC. The 1879 has long been a plentiful issue among Morgan dollars, even before the Treasury releases of the early 1960s. Nonetheless, its availability declines significant in Gem and finer condition. Examples are rarely seen in these grades with reflective fields. PCGS reports only a dozen Gem and finer Deep Mirror Prooflike coins, which are sought-after as Registry coins. This CAC-endorsed, Plus-graded example displays stark cameo contrast and sharp central definition. Liberty's cheek is clean and the fields show only the most microscopic grazes. No toning impedes the outstanding surfaces. Population: 10 in 65 (2 in 65+) Deep Mirror Prooflike, 2 finer. CAC: 2 in 65, 0 finer (1/19).

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
