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 ([[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.
