Why purchase this 1881-O Silver Morgan Dollar?
The Morgan Silver Dollar is the most beloved coin in American history. This coin is prized by collectors and non-collectors alike, and pieces are often passed down for generations. This piece comes from the fourth issue in the series and bears the "O" mint mark of the New Orleans Mint. Because only a fraction of the coins from this mintage were kept out of circulation, this Mint State 63 piece is a true find for discerning collectors.
Patriotic Eagle Design by George T. Morgan
Obverse: This coin takes its name from George T. Morgan, who designed both of its faces. The obverse features an American-style Liberty in left side profile wearing a Phrygian cap, a ribbon that bears her name, and a crown of cotton and wheat. On the rim are thirteen stars, symbols of the original states, and two inscriptions, "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "1881."
Reverse: On the reverse, an eagle holds arrows and an olive branch, symbols of military readiness and peace, within an open wreath. Between its wings are the words "IN GOD WE TRUST." Encircling this are rim inscriptions that provide the name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," and the face value of the coin, "ONE DOLLAR."
Well Preserved MS63 with Green Label
This coin's grading information comes on a green label. Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) graded this piece Mint State 63, which is quite high for a coin of this type given that most of them were released directly into circulation. The MS63 grade indicates that the coin has about an average strike and lacks any traces of wear. This coin was awarded the prestigious Green Label, which means that before grading and authentication at NGC, experts at Rare Coin Company of America (RARCOA) identified the coin as possessing desirable factors such as eye-apparel, razor-sharp strike, booming luster, or attractive toning. The Green Label gives collectors the opportunity to quickly identify superior quality coins that have undergone RARCOA's review in addition to NGC's stringent certification process.
