About 1895 DCAM Morgan Dollars (Proof)
The holy grail of Morgan dollars is none other than the 1895 proof, a coin that represents the only known Philadelphia-minted issues of the year. While 12,000 circulation strikes were reported, none have been accounted for. Thus, any coin collector who wants a truly complete collection of Morgan dollars must fork over tens of thousands of dollars (sometimes many tens of thousands of dollars) to buy a proof 1895 Morgan dollar. Some of these coins were spent as money, and thus it is possible to buy a more affordable 1895 proof Morgan – one that still costs much more than virtually any other circulated example in the series.
Several dozen example are certified in the better circulated grades, though the vast majority are uncirculated proofs. Most 1895 proof Morgan dollars do not boast cameo contrast, though a fairly large number do. DCAMs are rare but are notably more numerous for this issue than for many others. The vast majority grade between PR60-64, with a decent share in the PR65 and better grades. Those grading PR67 or higher are extremely rare.

About CDN Prices
All CDN prices are based on proprietary market knowledge and technology developed by CDN Publishing, LLC.
CPG® prices represent retail levels. Collectors should refer to CPG values as a starting place for their negotiations, or auction bid reference.
Greysheet/Greensheet prices are wholesale market levels for collectible coins/paper money intended to indicate what a dealer, or wholesale, buyer would pay for the described item in the specified grade. Greysheet/Greensheet represent "sight-seen" values based on a buyer's in-hand review. The actual value can be more or less than this depending on factors including eye appeal and market timing.
Bluesheet (NGC & PCGS) prices represent the highest sight-unseen offers to buy on dealer networks like CDN Exchange. In many cases, there are no active sight-unseen buy offers, so CDN looks to the recent lowest market values for such an item. For this reason, Bluesheet values typically represent the floor of the market for the specified item. CDN only tracks Bluesheet on certain items.
CAC prices are for U.S. coins that meet the standards of the Certified Acceptance Corporation. You can learn more about CAC on their web site.
Price movement is indicated for price changes in the last 30 days.
