Description & Analysis

Dave Bowers noted the following in the Morgan Dollar Red Book: "Above average strike for some, flat centers for others. Medium to low contrast. Better quality workmanship than in 1889, if only slightly."

Just 590 proof dollars were struck in 1890, the lowest proof mintage of any date through 1904, with the single exception of 1878.
