Description & Analysis

Q. David Bowers offers some interesting commentary about this issue in his Guide Book of Morgan Silver Dollars, noting: "Low contrast. About this time the Mint became sloppy in the making of Proofs ... Proofs of the era beginning about now are not on a visual par with those earlier in the decade. Be picky, picky, picky, and perhaps [emphasis his] you will find a nice one!"
