1888 is the third in a four year run of high production and extended die use at the Philadelphia mint1888 Morgan dollars tend to have a good, but coarse luster, and decent surfaces.  Striking details suffer on this issue,
 +
in part due to die fatigue.  A fully detailed, sharp strike would be considered a cherrypick.  Prooflike coins are available, but represent a small percentage of the uncirculated population.  There are a few doubled ear ([[1888-P VAM-11|VAMs 11]] and [[1888-P VAM-12|12]]) varieties, and some doubled reverses that are popular ([[1888-P VAM-4|VAMs 4]], 12, [[1888-P VAM-16|16]]), but the [[1888-P VAM-7|VAM 7]], with its many reverse die gouge stages is one of the more interesting die progressions. [[1888-P VAM-18|VAM 18]] also has a misplaced date in the denticles.

Die Study no

1888 is the third in a four year run of high production and extended die use at the Philadelphia mint. 1888 Morgan dollars tend to have a good, but coarse luster, and decent surfaces. Striking details suffer on this issue, in part due to die fatigue. A fully detailed, sharp strike would be considered a cherrypick. Prooflike coins are available, but represent a small percentage of the uncirculated population. There are a few doubled ear (VAMs 11 and 12) varieties, and some doubled reverses that are popular (VAMs 4, 12, 16), but the VAM 7, with its many reverse die gouge stages is one of the more interesting die progressions. VAM 18 also has a misplaced date in the denticles.
