Description & Analysis

In the early 1880's, mintage of Morgan dollars were really ramping up at the Philadelphia Mint. Over 14 million Morgans were struck in 1884, taking up much of the mint's production capacity. Due to this, only 4,400 mint-state half dollars were struck at the facility this year, along with 875 proofs. While the survival rate for the mint state pieces is much higher than normal due to collectors of the time recognizing the low mintage, more proofs have been submitted to NGC than MS coins.
