    Superb Cameo Prooflike 1883-CC Dollar--From the Forsyth Collection

    1883-CC MS 67 Deep Mirror Prooflike PCGS. While always available for a price in lower grades, the problem with this date is the same as with all other Carson City dollars--plentiful bagmarks that prevent a high grade. This coin is nothing less than extraordinary, not only for a Carson City product, but Morgan dollars in general. We can find no reportable abrasions on either side, just shimmering fields of unbroken mirrored reflectivity with thick, unscathed mint frost on the devices. The cameo contrast could not be heavier with a profound white-on-black appearance between the fields and devices. Sure to interest Carson City collectors as well as DMPL specialists, both of whom will prize this piece for its singular beauty. From the Forsyth Collection of Silver Dollars. Population: 2 in 67, none are finer (12/97).

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 254H, PCGS# 97145)

    Weight: 26.73 grams
