Why purchase this Great Montana Collection 1880-S Morgan Silver Dollar?

This Morgan Silver Dollar spent decades hidden from view, its existence known only to hoarder George Bouvier. It was upon his deathbed in 1998 that Bouvier revealed his secret to a young friend. After his death, Bouvier's family searched his Montana home and shop to discover not only this coin, but nearly 17,000 others stashed in coffee cans, painstakingly concealed in wall and floor cavities. The silver dollar is authenticated by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as part of Bouvier's hoard, now known as the "Great Montana Collection." This 1880 Morgan Dollar was struck from 0.7734 Troy oz. of .900 fine silver at the San Francisco Mint, its final mintage reported as 8,900,000.

Detailed Patriotic Imagery

The female personification of Liberty, as envisioned by U.S. Mint assistant engraver George T. Morgan, is featured on the obverse, encircled by thirteen stars, "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "1880."

The reverse, also Morgan's artistry, depicts an image symbolizing freedom: an eagle with its wings spread open, framed by a wreath below. Inscriptions include the San Francisco Mint mark "S," "IN GOD WE TRUST," "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "ONE DOLLAR."

Outstanding Mint State 64

NCG has graded this secretly kept example of an 1880-S Morgan Silver Dollar a Mint State 64. The coin exhibits a few light scuffs and average luster with excellent eye appeal. The coin is presented in an NGC holder, designated Great Montana Collection on its label.
