Why purchase this Mint State 1881-S Morgan Silver Dollar?

The U.S. Mint produced the Morgan Silver Dollar for twenty-eight years, beginning in 1878. This Morgan Dollar was struck in 1881 from 0.7734 Troy oz. of .900 fine silver at the San Francisco Mint. Morgans in Mint State condition can often be traced back to bank or private hoards. This coin has been authenticated by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as part of the Great Montana Collection, a private hoard amassed by George Bouvier of Deer Lodge, Montana, who kept his collection secured in coffee cans concealed within the framing of his home.

Design Representing Freedom and Liberty by George T. Morgan

An elegant portrait of Lady Liberty graces the obverse, encircled by "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and thirteen stars interrupted by the date "1881."

A heraldic eagle is centered on the reverse, holding three arrows and an olive branch, with "IN GOD WE TRUST" inscribed above and a laurel wreath below. The image incudes the additional inscriptions "ONE DOLLAR," "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and the "S" Mint mark of the San Francisco Mint.

Stunning Mint State 63

This 1881-S Morgan Silver Dollar was awarded the grade of Mint State 63 by NGC. Possessing attractive eye appeal, coins graded as such will bear a few minor scuff marks, with an average strike and luster. The coin is presented in an NGC holder, labeled to certify its inclusion in the Great Montana Collection.
