Why add the 1879-S Morgan Silver Dollar NGC Mint State 64 to your collection?

The experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) graded this 1879-S Morgan Silver Dollar at the highly collectible Mint State 64 level. The Morgan dollar is one of the most widely collected and popular coinage issues in the history of the United States. This is the second year of issue for the series. This example was struck at the San Francisco branch of the U.S. Mint on the standard 90% pure silver round that contains .7734 oz. actual silver weight. The mintage was 9,110,000 coins.

The Timeless Face of Liberty

The obverse image used on the coin is the portrait of Liberty, as modeled by Miss Anna W. Williams, a school teacher who dismissed this remarkable fact later in her life as "an incident from my youth." She is shown wearing a small crown with agricultural elements which reflected the agrarian American Economy of the 19th Century. The reverse features a Bald Eagle gripping arrows and an olive branch. The coin was designed by English immigrant George T. Morgan as his first assignment for the U.S. Mint.

What is Mint State 64?

The coins in this grade are well struck with nice luster and attractive details. There will be some small distractions present in the fields or in the devices but they tend to be not distracting in this grade.
