Why purchase this 1880-S Silver Morgan Dollar?

No coin in American history has captured the imaginations of generations of Americans quite like the Morgan Silver Dollar. The coins are frequently passed down to children and grandchildren, as many people do not wish to part with them for sentimental reasons. This piece comes from the third year of issue for the iconic series. It was struck from .7734 troy oz. of .900 fine silver at the San Francisco Mint, which is represented by an "S" mint mark at the base of the reverse design.

Historic Liberty Design by George T. Morgan

one of the major reasons for the coin's popularity of this series stems from the fact that Morgan departed from the long standing tradition of using Greek-style models for Liberty and instead chose an American-style one, Anna Willess Williams. He shows the figure in left-side profile with long hair that is partially covered by a Phrygian cap. She also wears a ribbon that bears an inscription of her name, "LIBERTY." The date, "1880," is inscribed at the bottom of this face, and thirteen stars, one for each of the original states, spread throughout the rest of the rim.

On the reverse, an eagle spreads its wings toward the edge while clutching arrows and an olive branch. The arrows symbolize America's willingness to defend her values, while the olive branch represents a preference for peace. The national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," is provided above the bird's head, while rim inscriptions offer the coin's country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," and face value, "ONE DOLLAR."

Beautifully Preserved MS66

This coin earned a Mint State 66 (MS66) grade from the experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). A coin must have been struck very well to receive that grade.

More a question - should an MS66 rating mean no scratches? Mine has scratch marks
