    1891 Dollar, PR68 Cameo
    Tied for Finest Cameo at Either Service

    1891 $1 PR68 Cameo NGC. One of only 650 proofs minted this year, this example is starkly contrasted on both sides, showing a uniform, profoundly deep cameo contrast. The surfaces are essentially brilliant throughout, with snow-white devices almost appearing to be suspended over watery, jet-black fields. No contact marks or hairlines occur that might cast the lofty grade assessment into doubt, either from a technical or an aesthetic standpoint. The strike is sharp, which is not always the case on proof dollars from the early 1890s; only the hair detail directly above Liberty's ear and forehead shows faint weakness. One of the finest-graded, and certainly one of the most beautiful 1891 proof Morgans, that we have ever seen. Census: 2 in 68 Cameo (1 in 68 ★ ), 0 finer (6/13). PCGS has seen one PR68 Cameo.
