    1897 Morgan Dollar, PR68 Cameo
    Rarely Encountered in This Grade

    1897 $1 PR68 Cameo NGC. In higher grades, the 1897 proofs are among the finest in the Morgan dollar series. Only nine PR68 1897 dollars have been assigned the Cameo designation by NGC, and five by PCGS. Neither service has seen any pieces finer (7/21). This is an essentially flawless coin that is devoid of mentionable marks. The fields are deeply mirrored and there is a significant layer of mint frost over the devices, giving the coin its strong cameo appearance. Just the slightest accent of rose-golden patina is seen over each side. Sharply struck design features reveal just a touch of weakness on the hair over Liberty's ear. An outstanding 1897 Cameo proof and among the finest known.

    The pre-sale publicity was more than I imagined, and the actual catalog better than I had expected - and my expectations were high!
