1901 Morgan Dollar, PR67+
1901 $1 PR67+ PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The Philadelphia Mint
struck 813 proof Morgan dollars in 1901, with the coins delivered
in quarterly batches throughout the year. Traditionally, many
collectors have opted for proof examples to fill this spot in their
collections because circulation-strike 1901 Morgan dollars are
rarely seen in high grade. Unfortunately, the new C-4 reverse hub
and problems with the Mint's annealing furnace also affected the
quality of proofs this year, and few examples seen have sharp
detail on the eagle's feathers or much contrast between the fields
Vivid Multicolor Toning
This Plus-graded Superb Gem exhibits well-detailed design elements, with just a trace of the usual softness on the hair above the ear and eagle's breast. The well-preserved surfaces are enhanced by vivid shades of bluish-gray and emerald-green toning, with reflective fields underneath. Population: 5 in 67 (1 in 67+), 0 finer (4/20).
Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 27ZZ, PCGS# 7336)
Weight: 26.73 grams
Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
