Why does this 7 Tail Feathers variety 1878 Morgan Silver Dollar deserve a place in your collection?

The U.S. Mint began production of its Morgan Dollar series in 1878. After the initial release of the series, the eagle design on the reverse was slightly altered to depict seven tail feathers instead of the original eight, resulting in what is known as the 1878 Seven Tail Feathers (7TF) design. Containing 0.7734 Troy oz. of .900 fine silver, this Morgan Silver Dollar is one of the 7TF Morgan Dollars struck at the Philadelphia Mint in 1878. Mintage of the inaugural release is reported to be 9,759,300 coins.

George T. Morgan's Silver Dollar Design

Lady Liberty is elegantly depicted in a left facing profile on the obverse, wearing a Phrygian cap with "LIBERTY" engraved upon the headband. The portrait is encircled by the inscription "E PLURIBUS UNUM," the date of issue "1878" and thirteen stars.

The reverse depicts a bald eagle with its wings outstretched clutching three arrows and an olive branch, partially framed by a laurel wreath curving below. Inscriptions include "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "ONE DOLLAR."
