Why add this 1880/79-S Morgan Silver Dollar From the Great Montana Collection NGC MS63 VAM-8 to your collection?

This 1880/79-S VAM-8 Morgan Silver Dollar achieved the Mint State 63 (MS63) grade from the industry leaders at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). This remarkable and timeless series was struck from 1878 until 1904 and then returned in 1921 for a final appearance before the debut of the Peace Dollar. The series was struck on 90% silver planchets, each containing .7734 oz. of bullion. The issue available here was struck at the U.S. Mint located in San Francisco. The mintage was 4,102,000 coins, many of which were circulated and then melted after World War I. This coin is a Top 100 Morgan VAM.

Classic Silver Dollar Design

What makes this a VAM-8? The short answer is the "80" re-punched over "79" in the last two numbers of the year. The obverse features the portrait Liberty wearing a coronet inscribed with her name. The reverse features the legislatively mandated depiction of an American Bald Eagle. The eagle is surrounded by a laurel wreath which symbolizes prosperity.

Classic Overdate Great Montana MS63

MS63 coins are choice uncirculated coins with attractive mint luster and good strike details. The coin also features the VAM-8 attribution and the storied Great Montana Collection pedigree.
