    Description

    1900 $1 Dollar PR 67 NGC. The final piece from this original proof set, the preceding five pieces almost pale in comparison to this superb gem Morgan dollar. The bold impression does not flag over either the eagle's breast feathers or the hair above the ear. The suitably frosted devices float serenely above the deep, watery fields. Despite these significant, praiseworthy features, this coin's most memorable characteristic is its exquisite natural toning. Ice-blue, gold, and charcoal-copper hues delicately overlay the obverse and serve merely to enhance the visual impact of this coin's proof qualities. In a similar manner, the reverse exhibits intense orange-gold and antique-copper toning throughout with faint traces of electric-green about the denticles. While NGC reports 11 examples in PR 67 and 7 finer (6/99), it is difficult to imagine a more visually appealing and numismatically perfect specimen. (NGC ID# 23XE, PCGS# 7440)
