Notes:
The 1892 Morgan Silver Dollar is seen most often in MS-63, but MS-64 examples are also frequently encountered.  Gems become a little scarce and, above MS-65, any example of this date is an extreme rarity.  Prooflikes and Gem Prooflikes are also quite rare.  The finest examples graded by PCGS are a single MS-66, 3 MS-65 Prooflikes, and 4 MS-65 Deep Mirror Prooflikes.

The Proof mintage for this date is the second highest of the series.  As expected, Proofs of this date are scarce, but can be found in Gem condition with no trouble.  The finest Proofs graded by PCGS are 2 PR-68s, a single PRCA-68 Proof Cameo, and a single PRDC-67 Proof Deep Cameo.
