A Numismatic Legend

Obverse: This silver dollar bears one of the most famous designs in all of American coinage. The obverse shows the head of Lady Liberty facing left. She wears a Phrygian Cap, an inscribed crown and agricultural motifs in her hair.

Reverse: The reverse bears the image of an eagle with its wings spread. This svelte bald eagle remains partially encircled by a laurel wreath. This iconic design was conceived of by numismatic legend George T. Morgan.

MS66+ with Exciting Green Label

MS66+ coins are thrilling additions to any collection. According to the NGC website, they describe the grade as "very well struck with minimal marks and hairlines." Coins that are awarded a "+" after the grade have superior characteristics for their assigned grade and are approaching the next grade level. The coins must have superior eye appeal in addition to the technical grade requirements. The Green Label allows collectors to easily identify coins of superior quality that prior to being graded, were also identified by the experts at RARCOA for meeting a set of strict quality guidelines.
