Notes:
The 1890-S Morgan Silver Dollar is easily obtained in all grades including Gem.  Prooflikes and Deep Mirror Prooflikes are scarce, and both become rare in Gem condition.  The most frequently seen Uncirculated grade is MS-63, followed by MS-64 and MS-62, in that order.  The finest examples certified by PCGS are 5 MS-67's, 2 MS-66 Prooflikes, and 7 MS-65 Deep Mirror Prooflikes.
