One 1895 Proof $1 Morgan Silver Dollar Coin NGC PF68 None Finer. The proof 1895 Morgan dollar has become one of the keys to completing the popular series. With most of the surviving pieces being impaired due to poor handling and/or crude attempts at cleaning, gems are rare and highly sought after. This coins surfaces are so pristine that it may be described by some as flawless. It displays cameo proof, although surprisingly undesignated, in other words, its richly frosted devices are set within deeply mirrored fields. The subtle shades of green-gray, rose, and gunmetal-blue toning enhance both sides of this delightful specimen. Only a mere 880 proof sets with the silver dollar were sold in 1895, a number whose significance was not understood at the time but which would become clear as later generations of numismatists attempted to complete their sets of Morgan dollars. Only then did it become apparent that none of the 12,000 1895 Philadelphia Mint dollars reportedly struck for circulation were extant. Not a single verifiable example could be located, and the demand for this issue has ever since fallen entirely on the few hundred proofs minted that year. Currently, only five examples have been certified Proof 68 (non-Cameo) by both services combined, and none are finer. NGC Certified.
