1896 Morgan Silver Dollar. Proof-67 Deep Cameo (PCGS). This dreamy Superb Gem exhibits heavy frosting to the design elements, the fields forming a splendid backdrop of deeply mirrored reflectivity. Virtually untoned and platinum-white, with just a subtle hint of vanilla hues near the border. Fully struck with razor sharp striking detail throughout, this is an expertly produced and preserved specimen that will please even the most discerning numismatist.Whereas Proofs of the 1888 to 1893 era are the most consistently unattractive in the Morgan dollar series (due to lightness of strike in the centers), those delivered between 1896 and 1898 are among the most beautiful. Special care seems to have been taken in the preparation of dies during the latter era, resulting in some of the most boldly cameoed Proof Morgans available to todays collectors. This is among the finest survivors from this desirable era, with only 7 examples graded finer by PCGS in the Deep Cameo category. Exceptional quality too for low-mintage issue of 762 pieces.
