1892 Morgan Dollar, PR68 Cameo
1892 $1 PR68 Cameo PCGS. The mintage of proof Morgan dollars
was markedly higher in 1892 than in the immediate years both prior
and after, perhaps partly due to the Columbian Exposition that was
originally scheduled for that year. The higher mintage is also
explained in part by the introduction of the Barber dime, quarter,
and half dollar during this year. Along with the new design change
came an increased interest in collecting, and this was followed a
year later by Heaton's study of mintmarked coinage, also
contributing to the rise in popularity of the numismatic hobby.
Many of the 1892 proofs suffered from indifferent striking quality
overall, with a number of coins lacking complete high-point
definition. Such was not the case with the currently offered Superb
Gem, however, which is fully struck.
Among the Finest Known of This Popular Proof Date
This is an impeccable cameo proof that displays a glassy, untoned appearance, with none of the often-seen weakness on the hair curls over Liberty's ear. The contrast between fields and devices is unmistakable, and the fragile fields have survived hairline-free and undisturbed by even the slightest evidence of contact. It is essentially untoned on the obverse, but the reverse is beginning to show hints of golden toning on some of the peripheral devices.
Just two other examples of this issue have been graded as PR68 Cameo by PCGS, with only a single finer PR68 Deep Cameo example certified by the same service (6/13).
