Description

    Fully Struck, Brilliant Premium Gem Proof
    1881 Morgan Dollar, Cameo Example

    1881 $1 PR66 Cameo PCGS. Any Morgan dollar proof, regardless of date, is conditionally rare at the Gem level, with Premium Gems considerably more so. The large size and exposed high points of the coins, as well as their relatively low face value compared to proof gold, made them more susceptible to contact marks and carelessness than many other U.S. coin series. The 1881 Morgans saw a typical proof mintage of 984 coins, but the majority of them fall below the Gem proof level. This PR66 Cameo PCGS-graded piece is brilliant and deeply mirrored, displaying strong mint frost that borders on a Deep Cameo designation. The impeccable strike is full throughout both sides. There are no mentionable signs of contact. Population: 7 in 66 (1 in 66+) Cameo, 6 finer (1/13).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 27Z5, PCGS# 87316)

    Weight: 26.73 grams
