    1878 7TF Morgan, PR64 Cameo
    Scarce Reverse of 1878 Proof

    1878 7TF $1 Rev 1878 PR64 Cameo NGC. Mintage figures for the 1878 7TF Reverse of 1878 proof are not concrete, although conventional wisdom is that the number is small. Estimates of just 200 or 250 coins are typical. The Guide Book lists a mintage of just 250 coins for this issue and the Reverse of 1879 proof combined. In A Guide Book of Morgan Silver Dollars, fifth edition, Q. David Bowers writes: "This variety will challenge you, not only to find one in the first place, but beyond that, to get one with good eye appeal."

    Offered here is a near-Gem Cameo, a rarity among Morgan dollar proofs and a more difficult coin to acquire than the 1895 proof, which is more highly heralded among collectors at large. Each side is sharp and reflective with good contrast. Russet-golden toning around the borders lightens as it reaches toward the devices, leaving the centers with a light golden hue. An important offering for the specialist of this series. Census: 6 in 64 Cameo, 7 finer (5/20).(Registry values: P6)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2573, PCGS# 87312)

    Weight: 26.73 grams

    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.
