Why add this 1879 Morgan Silver Dollar to your collection?
In 1879, the U.S. Mint began its second year of production of the Morgan Silver Dollar series. The series is named for its designer George T. Morgan, an assistant engraver at the time, who became the Mint's 7th Chief Engraver in 1917. The series was produced for a total of twenty-eight years, at five different Mints, resulting in a staggering ninety-six unique date and Mint mark combinations.
Magnificent Patriotic Design

Reverse: An eagle holding an olive branch and three arrows is centered on the reverse, surrounded by a laurel wreath tied with a ribbon. The inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "ONE DOLLAR" accompany the image.
