Description & Analysis

The proof mintage of the 1885 Morgan dollar amounted to 930 pieces, of which likely 300 or so exist today, according to the population data and including resubmissions, crossovers, and other 'grading events,' as Bowers calls it. Most of the extant pieces, however, average a grade around PR64 or thereabouts.
