    1886 Morgan, PR67 Deep Cameo
    Tied for Finest at PCGS
    Dramatic Contrast

    1886 $1 PR67 Deep Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The proof 1886 Morgan dollar has a reputation for being a challenge to locate with strong eye appeal. This issue survives mainly with little or no cameo contrast. As Dave Bowers writes in A Guide Book of Morgan Silver Dollars, fifth edition, "Contrast medium to low. Nice 1886 Proof dollars exist, but they are harder to find than certain other dates mentioned thus far." PCGS has certified only three pieces as Deep Cameo -- one in PR64 and two in PR67. This is one of those top two coins.

    Contrast is astounding for the 1886 proof. Stark white-on-black surfaces balance the liquidlike mirroring of the fields with the frosted, shimmering luster of the devices. There are some subtle blushes of amber toning around the borders, but the majority of this coin is brilliant and beautifully preserved. Eye appeal is exceptional. Population: 2 in 67 Deep Cameo, 0 finer (4/20).
