1) Have any 1900 Layfayette dollars been found in the gsa dollar sales?
2) Any 1895 proofs found in the gsa sales?

No 1895's in the GSA sales. No Lafayette dollars in the sales but there is a chance some may have been disbursed in the silver dollar drawdown from the Treasury during the 50's and early 60's. The unsold Lafayettes were held by the Treasury until they were all melted down in 1945.

The short answers are no and no. There was, however, one 1889-CC in the sale.

The vast majority of the GSA coins were Carson City Morgans. Well over 2/3 of all known Carson City Morgans were in the GSA sale. The 1882-CC, 1883-CC, and 1884-CC dollars account for about 3/4 of the Carson City dollars in the sale.

The David Bowers book on Morgan dollars is good reference guide. It gives actual percentages of each year of Carson City that were in the GSA sale. 1885 was quite high.

Highest was I believe the 1884 CC with 3/4ths of the entire mintage being in the GSA holdings.
