This first year of issue 1878-CC Morgan Silver Dollar ships to you in Brilliant Uncirculated condition, just as it was the day it was sealed in the Government Services Administration (GSA) Holder.

Carson City Mint strikes are among the most coveted and collected coins in the U.S. These coins tend to be scarce and sought after in any grade. The GSA holder, from the government sales of "surplus" silver dollars are also popular with collectors. Morgan Dollars are also one of the most collected series in american numismatics. They were struck from 1878 until 1904 and then again in 1921. Morgans were struck on 90% coin silver planchets and have .7734 oz. ASW.

The series was designed by George T. Morgan while he was in his early thirties. Later in his career he became the Chief Engraver of the US Mint. The obverse of the coin features Lady Liberty, as she was modeled by Miss Anna Willess Williams, a school teacher from Philadelphia. Liberty is shown wearing a coronet with the inscription "Liberty" with a Phrygian cap on her head. The reverse heraldic eagle was not readily accepted by the public due to a more diminutive build. Morgans were sometimes referred to as "Buzzard Dollars" because of the reverse image.
