Description

    1899 Silver Dollar, PR68 Cameo
    Significant Field-Device Contrast

    1899 $1 PR68 Cameo NGC. An elegant piece with pristine surfaces and amazing aesthetic appeal, this Superb Gem proof offers highly lustrous devices surrounded by deeply mirrored fields. No evidence of toning appears on either side, merely brilliant silver surfaces with a considerable complement of field-device contrast. With a business strike mintage of just 330,000 pieces and an additional 846 proofs, this is an important date in the Morgan dollar series with few high-quality survivors in either format. Some collectors who otherwise seek high-grade business strikes have opted for similar-quality proofs which are more widely available. Census: 9 in 68 Cameo (1 in 68+ Cameo) (2/13).
    Ex: St. Louis Central States Signature (Heritage, 5/2007), lot 2191, which brought $37,375.
