Lot Description
1879-CC $1 MS62 Deep Mirror Prooflike PCGS. CAC. This piece should prove to be overwhelmingly appealing, not only for the legions of Morgan dollar collectors, but even more so for those whose primary collecting goal is Deep Mirror Prooflike pieces. Many 1879-CC Morgans show partial prooflikeness, but few indeed offer sufficiently deep field-device contrast to qualify for this much more elusive appellation. Frosty snow-white surfaces yield rich contrast with profoundly reflective mirrors, providing the coveted black-on-silver appearance so admired in these coins. Population: 18 in 62 Deep Mirror Prooflike, 42 finer (9/09).
