Notes:
The 1884 Morgan Silver Dollar is readily obtainable in Mint State, but is scarce as a Prooflike or Deep Mirror Prooflike.  The most common Uncirculated grade is MS-64, followed by MS-63.  The finest examples graded by PCGS is a single MS-68, a single MS-67 Prooflike, and 5 MS-66 Prooflikes.

Proofs of this date are scarce, but can be found in Gem condition with a bit of searching.  The finest Proofs graded by PCGS are a single PR-68, a single PRCA-66 Proof Cameo, and 2 PRDC-66 Proof Deep Cameo.
