    Key 1895 Proof Morgan Silver Dollar

    1895 $1 PR62 PCGS. To the collector of this popular series, the 1895 proof is the ultimate rarity. It has often been called the "king" of the Morgan Dollars and who could really argue? The 12,000 business strikes reportedly struck were surely among the many millions of Silver Dollars melted under the provisions of the Pittman Act in 1918. Today, only proofs are known to exist and there were just 880 pieces initially struck. This is a light olive-gray specimen with a small area of deeper coloration on the right side of the reverse. A few inconsequential blemishes are noticed in the vicinity of Liberty's chin.
    From the Holman Family Collection. (#7330)

    The outcome of the auction far exceeded my best hopes and would not likely have been as successful with out your sound advice on where to present the coin and how best to set the reserve. Throughout the process your availability , support and knowledge were exceptional.
