Morgan Dollars
1902 $1 PF

Description & Analysis

In 1902, the Mint changed the way in which it prepared proof coinage dies. The new process removed much of the frost which was usually found on proof coins. This change was not popular and lasted only a few years. However, because of this change, 1902 proof coins are extremely hard to find with any cameo contrast at all. While some 777 Morgan dollar proofs were struck in 1902, only ten have earned a cameo designation at NGC. (6/2019)
