Description & Analysis

For collectors who have followed proof Morgans over the years, the 1893 is an interesting case study. This issue is best-typified by the following quote from Dave Bowers 1993 Silver Dollar Encyclopedia:

"The situation of flatly struck Proof coins begun in 1888--coins with lightness of strike above Miss Liberty's ear on the obverse and on the eagle's breast feather on the reverse--was continued. In 1892 and 1893 dollars the flatness is particularly noticeable; more so than in the earlier years. Often the obverse center is quite flat, and on the reverse the eagle's feathers are missing. The majority of Proof 1893 dollars are flatly struck. The VAM text calls the 1893 dollars 'the most poorly struck Morgan proofs.' "
