    Description

    1901 Morgan Dollar, PR67+
    Vivid Multicolor Toning

    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 and devices.

    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
