Date Specific NGC Certified Morgan Dollars in Prooflike Condition - The Morgan Silver Dollar is one of the most famous and most highly-collected U.S. coins of all time. These large Silver coins are known for their value, quality of strike and design, and beauty. A very small percentage of Morgan Silver Dollars were struck in Proof condition. These Proof coins were specially struck on highly polished blanks, and they were struck for collectors and dignitaries at the time. Once the tiny number of Proofs were actually struck, the same proof dies were used to strike regular business strike coins. Some of the very first coins struck with these proof dies imparted on the coins the appearance of a highly reflective (mirrored) surface on the fields of the coins on one or both sides.For Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) one of the two premier independent third-party grading services, to call a coin Prooflike (PL) or the even more desirable, Deep Prooflike (DPL), the coins must be reflective on both sides. Even if a coin exhibits very prooflike qualities on one side but not on the other, the coin will NOT be designated as Prooflike by NGC.
To be considered Prooflike, a coin must have a level of reflectivity, on both sides of the coins, of at least 2 to 4 inches. That means you must be able to read a document, by looking at the mirrorlike surface of the coin from 2 to 4" away. If you can read that reflectivity from more than 4" away, the coin qualifies for Deep Prooflike (DPL) categorization. Prooflike and Deep Prooflike coins are extremely scarce and the populations of these coins at NGC are a tiny fraction when compared to the same date and nintmark of coin in non-prooflike condition. Prooflike and Deep Prooflike coins are a fascinating aspect to collect of this amazing series of coins and the surviving populations of these coins is very small indeed .
