    Description

    First Year Cameo Gem Proof Morgan Dollar, 1878 8 Tail Feathers

    1878 8TF $1 PR65 Cameo NGC. VAM-14.3. The 1878 8TF is the initial design of the Morgan dollar series, comparatively overlooked in proof format and even more challenging than the modest mintage of 500 coins would suggest. This dazzling, high grade specimen, unlike the majority of 8TF proofs, is completely brilliant with an appreciable if mild degree of contrast between the fields and the devices. The quality-conscious Morgan dollar collector who prefers brilliant coins would do well to consider this carefully preserved first-year representative.
    From The Mulholland Collection.(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2572, PCGS# 87311)

    Weight: 26.73 grams
