Proof Like Morgan Silver Dollars - Brilliant Uncirculated Condition - Many Dates And Price Ranges Available!

These proof like Morgans were some of the first to be struck from each new die. Proof Like Morgan Dollars are some of the rarest and most desirable Silver Dollars, each coin offered is priced according to grade, scarcity and depth of its proof like mirrors. Make your choice below!

What does Proof Like mean? One of the characteristics of most proof coins is that they have mirrored surfaces. When you have a non proof coin (business strike) that has mirrored surfaces (sometimes called "fields") it is considered Proof-Like (or PL). Unlike proof coins, proof like coins have not purposely been struck to have mirrored surfaces. In fact, only a limited amount of coins first coming off of a highly polished die will have proof like fields. That being the case, many proof likes are extremely rare and often are rarer than a proof of the same year!

Proof likes are divided into 3 classifications depending on the depth (reflectivity) of their mirrored surfaces: A Deep Mirror Proof Like (DMPL or DPL) will reflect objects in clear detail when held 4 or more inches away. Proof Like (PL) will reflect clearly at 2-4 inches, while a Semi Proof Like coin will reflect only at an inch or so. Semi PL's usually command little or no premium over a regular uncirculated coin, though it's worth noting that a semi P-L coin can be a great buy when priced the same as a less "flashy" example!

Because obverse and reverse dies can be used at different times, "one sided" Proof Like Morgan Dollars were often struck. The one sided Proof Likes are almost always worth less than coins with mirrored surfaces on both sides. The coins offered here will be Proof Like on both sides unless noted!

It's important to remember that though in some cases they can be difficult to tell apart, a Proof Like coin is not a Proof coin! Perhaps even more important to remember is that over the years many coins have been polished to resemble Proof or Proof Like coins. It can take a trained eye to be able to differentiate between the two, and beware that the polished piece is always worth far less than just a typical uncirculated coin.

    I got an 1884 o MS 63. It was well struck for a New Orleans coin. Some tarnish on the Obverse fields, and a fingerprint smudge on the reverse.
