    Finest Known at PCGS Deep Mirror Prooflike Gem 1887-S/S Morgan Dollar

    1887-S/S $1 MS65 Deep Mirror Prooflike PCGS. VAM-2. A Top 100 Variety. While the VAM-2 is readily available, it is nevertheless a desirable item because of the clarity of the repunched mintmark. This is a thoroughly brilliant coin and the devices are heavily frosted, set off starkly against the "blackness" of the mirrored fields. A trace of cloudiness in the fields is normal, and not a hindrance either to the assigned grade level or the eye appeal of the piece. Fully struck throughout and exceptionally clean, as expected, this is the only Deep Mirror Prooflike Gem, and the single finest example certified by PCGS, not just of the VAM-2 variety, but of all 1887-S Morgans. A significant offering for the Morgan dollar specialist, especially one who focuses on Deep Mirror Prooflikes. Population: 1 in 65 Deep Mirror Prooflike, 0 finer (10/05).
