Why purchase this 1879-S Morgan Silver Dollar?

This Morgan Silver Dollar was struck at the San Francisco Mint in 1879, the second year of release of the U.S. Mint's magnificent series. The coin was once part of George Bouvier's private hoard now known as the Great Montana Collection. Throughout his lifetime, the Montana resident collected approximately 17,000 coins, about 8,000 of which were silver dollars. He kept the coins safely hidden in coffee cans under the floors of his shop and within the walls of his home.

George T. Morgan's Vision of Liberty Personified

A portrait in profile of Lady Liberty is depicted on the obverse, her hair held in place by a "LIBERTY" inscribed headband and a Phrygian cap. Thirteen six-pointed stars, "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "1879" encircle the confident Lady.

The reverse features imagery representing freedom and peace, in the form of an eagle grasping an olive branch and arrows, with a laurel wreath below. Inscribed "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "ONE DOLLAR," with the New Orleans Mint mark "O."
