Lot Description
1887 $1 MS66 Deep Mirror Prooflike PCGS. The 1887 Morgan dollar claims an enormous mintage of nearly 20 million pieces, but Premium Gem examples, with Deep Mirror Prooflike surfaces, are decidedly rare. The present coin is a magnificent Premium Gem that displays sharp details in most areas, with just a touch of softness on the hair above the ear. The frosty devices show an uncommon degree of contrast with the deeply mirrored fields. Population: 31 in 66 Deep Mirror Prooflike, 0 finer (4/11).
