Lot Description
1890-O $1 MS65 Deep Mirror Prooflike PCGS. CAC. The 1890-O Morgan dollar issue is one that is available at the Gem level, although such pieces are far more (about 7x) elusive than their near-Gem counterparts. Only about 4% of the Gems at PCGS are certified Prooflike, however, with around 3% certified Deep Mirror Prooflike. This piece has lots of contrast, as demanded, between the mirrored fields and frosted devices. The surfaces are primarily silver-white, with rims showing traces of amber. Abrasions are expectedly few on this piece, although we note some roller marks on the lower cheek and in the hair just over the ear. Population: 16 in 65 Deep Mirror Prooflike, 1 finer (3/10).
