Set Description:

The most spectacular Morgan Silver Dollars are, in my opinion, the deep-mirror proof-like coins. They are under-valued and do not get the registry points they deserve, considering their extreme rarity and desirability.

This collection is comprised of only Carson City Morgan Silver Dollars in the original General Services Administration (GSA) hard black holders. In order to achieve the grade, they must exhibit mirror-like devices and a cameo effect for Lady Liberty. They are as close as you can get to proof coins, without actually being proof coins. Typically, they were produced when new polished dies were used, and the first few thousand coins from each new die exhibited deep-mirror proof-like attributes. As the polished surfaces of the new dies wore down, the deep-mirror proof-like appearance diminished.

Where a date includes proof-like, but not deep-mirror proof-like, I will include a proof-like example.

This collection was assembled over many years and includes some really hard-to-find coins. My pictures were taken in low-light conditions, to highlight the cameo effect of the coins. These low-light photos are not easy to take, but I like the way they look. I hope you enjoy browsing this set. I certainly enjoyed putting it together.

If you would like to know more about the history of the GSA silver dollars, see my other registry set for Carson City Morgan Silver Dollars in GSA Holders. Thanks for looking.
