    1887/6 Morgan Dollar, MS66 Prooflike
    Popular Guide Book Overdate, VAM-2

    1887/6 $1 VAM-2 MS66 Prooflike PCGS. A Top 100 Variety. Ex: Jack Lee, Part II. The remnants of an undertype 6 are visible on either side of the 7 at the bottom of the primary digit, identifying this popular Guide Book overdate. The Philadelphia Mint produced a staggering total of more than 20 million Morgan dollars in 1887, using 55 obverse dies to strike the coins. Only one obverse die is known with the overdate feature, so we assume the VAM-2 mintage was a tiny fraction of the reported production.

    The present coin is a spectacular Premium Gem, with well-detailed design elements that show just a trace of blending on the hair above the ear. The well-preserved, brilliant surfaces show a mix of vibrant frosty mint luster on the devices and prooflike reflectivity in the fields. Eye appeal is terrific. Population: 5 in 66 Prooflike, 0 finer (1/20). (NGC ID# 254Z, Variety PCGS# 42842, Base PCGS# 7175)

    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.
