Why add the 1878 Morgan Silver Dollar (7/8TF Strong) PCGS MS64 to your collection?

This 1878 Morgan Silver Dollar with the 7/8 TF Strong was given the high grade of MS64 by Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS). This coin was struck at the U.S. Mint in Philadelphia. The silver used for these coveted dollars largely came from the famous Comstock Lode silver mine in Nevada. Each Morgan contains .7734 oz. of silver struck on a 90% pure planchet.

ANOTHER Tail-Related Variety

Today all Morgan Enthusiasts know that eagles have seven tail feathers. This was not the case with all U.S. Mint engravers in 1878! This error led to several die varieties in the Morgan Dollar's first year of issue. In an effort to reduce waste and to be frugal, the Mint altered the dies with the incorrect details. Some of these dies were more successful than others in the effort to correct the tail of our friend the eagle which is featured on the reverse. There are two of the 7/8 die varieties, the strong type with clearly defined alterations and the weak. This example is the strong type. As ever, Liberty herself graces the obverse.

MS64 Stunner for your collection

MS64 coins are lustrous examples with a strong strike and a limited number of contact marks or evidence of handling. These high-quality coins experience steady collector demand and interest.
