Notes:

The finest "Double Die" example graded by PCGS is a single AU-58.

You can expect to pay a premium for Proof 1901 Morgan Silver Dollars because of competition from collectors who find great difficulty in locating true Mint State examples.  As a Proof, this date is no rarer than any other, but locating a Gem can be quite a challenge, both actually and economically.  The finest Proofs graded by PCGS are 4 PR-67s and 2 PR-66 Cameos.
