DESCRIPTION:  

The Carson City Mint has always been a favorite among Morgan silver dollar collectors, and the limited number of early production run coins that receive the Deep Mirror Prooflike designation increase this coin's allure.  This example exhibits frosty devices on a medium depth of mirrored fields, and the solid strike is generally typical of this date and mintmark.  There are no distracting marks on Liberty's cheek and the field in front of her face; there is some weakness of strike on the eagle's breast feathers, but nothing unusual for a Morgan silver dollar of any year and mintmark.  A much rarer coin in higher grades than current pricing would indicate.
