Why add this PCGS Mint State 64 1880-S Morgan Silver Dollar to your collection?

This 1880-S Morgan Silver Dollar was graded Mint State 64 by the industry leaders at Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS). This issue is a great choice for a higher grade Morgan to add to your collection.

Morgan Dollars are one of the most collected series in America. They were struck beginning in 1878 though 1904 and again in 1921. Morgans were struck on .900 fine silver planchets and contain .7734 oz. actual silver weight. This coin was struck at the Old San Francisco Mint which was also known as "The Granite Lady." That facility survived the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and served until 1937!

George T. Morgan, an English engraver and immigrant was the designer of the series. It was one of his first assignments for the Mint. He ultimately became the Seventh Chief Engraver of the US Mint in 1917. The obverse depicts the allegorical Liberty in profile. The reverse image is a heraldic eagle.

Mint State 64 coins are characterized by good strikes and Mint luster. There may be some small contact marks, in addition to one or two moderately heavy marks. Some hairlines may show under magnification. There may be light scuffing or defects may be within the design details or in the fields. Overall this is a high-quality grade with very good eye appeal.
