Description & Analysis

Although this business strike 1887 Morgan dollar is very common with over 20,000,000 struck, only 710 proofs were made in Philadelphia that year. This year was not the best when it comes to quality however, as many have been hairlined over the years, and few have heavy cameo contrast.
