    Fully Prooflike Gem 1921 Morgan Silver Dollar

    1921 $1 MS65 Deep Mirror Prooflike PCGS. Ex: Jack Lee. Even though 1921 Dollars were produced in record-setting numbers, very few prooflikes were issued. Apparently, because of the emphasis on quantity, dies were not polished in order to make a more pleasing product. Rather, the few prooflikes that are known are coins that were produced from new dies. As a result, very few 1921 Dollars exist today with any degree of contrast, and most are heavily abraded as they were bagged and roughly handled as were the other 44 million dollars struck this year. This coin was obviously struck from a new pair of dies. It does show a pleasing and noticeable cameo contrast. But there is no evidence of die polishing in the fields, and the striking details are razor sharp--all of which points to this piece being struck from a new pair of dies. There are virtually no distracting blemishes, as usually seen on 1921 Dollars, and the only color present is a hint of pale-golden color at the peripheries. This is a 1921 Morgan Dollar for a serious collector and the single finest certified at PCGS (1/06).
