Description & Analysis

As the 1890s unfolded, the Philadelphia Mint seemed to master their technique in producing proof silver coins. Many show exceptional frost and pristine surfaces, as the collectors also learned how to maintain the surfaces without cleaning their coins. Today some of these 1890s silver coins are simply stunning for their colorful tones and superb surfaces.
