    Important 1878 7TF Round Breast Proof

    1878 7TF Reverse of 1879 PR 64 PCGS. An important proof specimen, the Round Breast 1878 variety is easily the most elusive of the Philadelphia mint proof Morgan dollars struck from 1878 to 1904. The mintage is estimated between 25 and 50 coins, with survivors numbering in single digits. This example is among the finer known pieces, being overlaid on both sides in rich bluish-green toning and shading to steel-violet in the centers. Underneath, the surfaces exhibit glittering proof brilliance and only the most trivial blemishes. The total population of proof 1878 Third Reverse dollars at both major grading services is just seven coins, with the additional possibility of repeat submissions only inflating that small number. None have graded finer than this dazzling, richly toned specimen. Population: 2 in 64, none higher. (NGC ID# 27YZ, PCGS# 7313)

    Weight: 26.73 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
