Why add the 1878 Morgan Silver Dollar (8TF) NGC Mint State 64 to your collection?

This First Year of Issue 1878 Morgan Silver Dollar (8TF) was graded at the solid and collectible Mint State (MS) 64 level by the experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). This series was struck on 90% silver planchets that contain .7734 oz. actual silver weight. This issue was struck at the Philadelphia Mint.

First Appearance of the Classic Morgan Design

The obverse of the coin features the well known George T. Morgan portrait of the allegorical American Ideal, Lady Liberty. She wears a crown inscribed with her name and ornamented with agricultural motifs. The reverse is the embodiment of one of the more famous stories about the series. The spread heraldic eagle on the reverse is featured with the incorrect number of eight tail feathers. Eagles in real life (and on the pattern coins struck prior to production and later the subsequently corrected circulation coins) have seven tail feathers.

Solid and Attractive Mint State 64

Mint State 64 coins have very attractive eye appeal and above average mint luster. They tend to be well struck. They will have small contact marks, scuffs, hairlines or other distractions with perhaps a heavy mark or two. Overall, coins in this grade are attractive, sought-after examples that are welcome additions to any Numismatic collection.
