1895 Morgan Dollar PCGS PR62

Brilliant Morgan King

In 1895, the Mint struck 880 proof Morgan dollars for distribution in the annual silver proof sets. However, unlike in other years, plans to strike circulation coins came and went with, at most, a brief “hurrah” that never even made it out of the Mint. Mint records indicate that 12,000 circulation strikes were made, but none have ever been known to collectors. It’s often debated whether the coins were actually struck (and later melted) or if their “coinage” was nothing more than an accounting error on the Mint’s books. Contemporary numismatists, such as the Chapman brothers, believed that no circulation strikes were ever produced. Modern research clouds the water on this point, but with no circulation strikes known, one inherent fact remains: the 1895 Morgan dollar is only known in proof format. And therein lies its status as the “king of the Morgan dollars.” This example is virtually color-free and (contrary to how it appears in our images) highly brilliant.

1907 Wire Rim High Relief Double Eagle NGC PR61

Rare Proof

Proof High Reliefs are one of the most divisive issues in U.S. numismatics. Generally opinion falls into either the “yes” or “no” categories with little uncertainty or middle ground allowed by either side. PCGS is in the “no” camp as they do not certify proof High Reliefs, and NGC is in the “yes” camp. Among the determinants for proofs, according to NGC, is a “distinctive texture and satiny luster” according to Scott Schechter, but more specifically it was the use of the collar that was used to strike the Edge 3 Ultra High Reliefs in March-April 1907 and again on December 31 of that year. We believe that a scratch in the left obverse field accounts for the less-than-choice grade and makes this coin more affordable than it otherwise would be. In hand, when tilted slightly under a light, it is lighter than seen in our images. Listed at $24,600 in the NGC price guide.
