These Morgan silver dollars are not only graded mint-state but they also carry the unusual "proof-like" designation. Proof-like BUs have a surface nearly as clean and crisp as a proof coin but were struck from working dies for circulation. These special coins were probably some of the first produced from new or newly polished dies. If you turn one in your hand, you'll see a beautiful "cartwheel" effect of dancing luster. Every detail of George T. Morgans splendid engravings are highlighted on these coins and further enhanced by the dazzle of the brilliant proof-like surfaces. You'll find these impressive Morgans are a real privilege and delight to possess.
Morgans are the most collected classic silver dollars in the world. Most passed through the U.S. economy when a 90% silver dollar was a days pay for many Americans. Today only about 17% of original Morgan mintages are estimated to survive. And far, far fewer are extant in mint-state grades, much less this special proof-like BU quality. Our choice of date.
