Why purchase this 1880-S Morgan Silver Dollar?
The U.S. Mint began production of its Morgan Silver Dollar series in 1878. This example, containing 0.7734 Troy oz. of .900 fine silver, was struck at the San Francisco Mint in 1880, a time in American history when stagecoach robberies were common. The coin includes special packaging depicting Black Bart, one of California's most notorious stagecoach robbers in the 1870s and 1880s. Black Bart was also known as the "Gentleman Bandit" for his sophistication and style, and reputation for leaving poetic messages at his robbery sites.
