Description & Analysis

In 1888, the Philadelphia Mint struck 833 proof Morgan dollars. Unfortunately, the quality of the proofs this year was much lower than those of previous years, specially when it comes to cameo contrast. Of the pieces graded by NGC, nearly 80% received no cameo designation, and only about 1% have been called Ultra Cameo. (10/2016)
