A well worn 1895 Morgan Silver Dollar (King of the Morgans)
Sorry if someone posted this previously, but I found this remarkable. PCGS tweeted this out recently.
Back in 1895 only 880 Proof Morgan Dollars were minted. So the only way to get an 1895-P Morgan in your collection is to obtain one of the 880 proofs.
Does anyone know the backstory to this coin posted below? I am guessing at some point a collector that ordered this 1895 Proof from the mint must have spent it into circulation or maybe it was spent by one of his kids / heirs. Then it circulated for decades until someone must have found it in their pocket change or roll hunting. Can you imagine finding this? The PCGS price guide lists it at $35,000 in this condition. It's fantastic that nobody ever cleaned or dipped it. And how often do you see a slabbed PR06 ?
