Description & Analysis

The 1884 is a difficult proof Morgan dollar to evaluate. Even the same author may have divergent opinions at different times in his career. Q. David Bowers, in his early 1990s work Silver Dollars & Trade Dollars of the United States, wrote:

"As might be expected from the mintage of 875 pieces, Proofs are readily available on the market. However, as is also the case with nearly all other early dates of Proof Morgan dollars, many have been cleaned and today are in the lower grade ranges of Proof-60 to 63."

In his third edition of A Guide Book of Morgan Silver Dollars from 2007, on the other hand, he offers a "good strike and deep cameo contrast" as the keys to collecting this date. The two statements are not as mutually exclusive as they may seem at first glance; though he spoke of the many before, he is speaking of the best examples in his later work.

The 1884 Proof seems to be somewhat available through PR64. The certified population starts to fall off, however, at the full Gem level.
