Notes:
The finest Uncirculated examples graded by PCGS are 8 MS-67's, 3 MS-67 Prooflikes, and 2 MS-65 Deep Mirror Prooflikes.

Gem Proofs of this date are available for a price, but in PR-66 and better grades, the 1900 Morgan Silver Dollar becomes quite rare.  This is one of the dates that is not available in PR-68 (at least, not in a PCGS holder); the finest Proofs graded by PCGS are 2 PR-67s, a single PRCA-67 Proof Cameo, and 2 PRDC-67 Proof Deep Cameos.
