    1891-S Morgan, MS65+ Deep Mirror Prooflike
    Spectacular Reflectivity

    1891-S $1 MS65+ Deep Mirror Prooflike PCGS. CAC. A well-produced mintage of 5.3 million Morgan dollars was achieved at the San Francisco Mint in 1891. Most of the coins were held in storage, to be released at later dates or melted under the provisions of the Pittman Act in 1918. The issue is not rare as a date, and examples with prooflike surfaces are available with patience, but specimens in Gem condition, with intense contrast, are rare.

    The present coin displays dramatic contrast between the sharply-detailed design elements and the brightly reflective fields. The brilliant surfaces display a few hints of gold toning and some minor contact marks, none worthy of individual mention. This coin possesses exceptional eye appeal. Population: 5 in 65 (2 in 65+) Deep Mirror Prooflike, 0 finer. CAC: 1 in 65, 0 finer (1/19).
