Why add this 1878 Morgan Dollar to your silver coin collection?

1878 marks the first year of issue for the Morgan Silver Dollar. Over the course of the year, the obverse design was modified several times, resulting in four different reverses for the coin's inaugural year. The finalized design of the year featured the alteration from eight to seven tail feathers on the eagle, referred to as "7 TF" by the grading services. The design served as the standard going into the next year of production, earning the design title "Reverse of '79" or "Rev79". This 7 tail feather, 1878 Morgan Dollar is struck from .900 fine silver, and bears no Mint mark, meaning it was struck at the Philadelphia Mint. The impressive coin measures 38.1 mm in diameter, with a final mintage reported as 9,759,300.

Silver Dollar design by George T. Morgan

Lady Liberty is depicted on the obverse, wearing a Phrygian cap, symbolic of freedom and the pursuit of liberty. The reverse features the seven tail feather design eagle, grasping an olive branch and arrows.
