Why add the 1880-S Morgan Silver Dollar PCGS MS65 DMPL to your collection?
This 1880-S Morgan Silver Dollar earned the high collector grade of Mint State 65 (MS65) from Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) and also earned the coveted DMPL or Deep Mirror Proof-Like designation. In 1878 the United States Mint began striking a national treasure: the Morgan Silver Dollar. Each example contains .7734 oz. of silver struck on a 90% pure planchet. The series was struck until 1904 and then had one more year of issuance in 1921. This coin originated at the world-famous San Francisco Branch of the U.S. Mint.
Morgan's Stunning Dollar
The obverse features the face of Lady Liberty in left profile. She is shown wearing an inscribed coronet with ivy in her hair. The reverse features the mighty U.S. Bald Eagle. George T. Morgan designed this Numismatic Icon when he was in his thirties as his first assignment in the US.
Highly Collectible DMPL Appearance
MS65 Morgan specimens are in high demand with series specialists and sophisticated type collectors. They are difficult to obtain with the DMPL designation. The DMPL designation is reserved for coins that exhibit heavily mirrored clear fields and exceptionally frosty devices. This designation is coveted by Morgan Silver Dollar specialists. MS65 coins are well-struck examples with stunning Mint luster, outstanding original surfaces and few if any significant contact marks or distractions.
