Unifying Liberty Design by George T. Morgan

George T. Morgan designed both faces of this coin. Obverse: On the obverse is a left-side portrait of Liberty, whom Morgan depicts as an American-style figure. She wears a ribbon that bears an inscription of her name, a Phrygian cap, and a crown made from one Northern crop, wheat, and one Southern crop, cotton. Along the rim are the inscriptions "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "1881," which are connected by thirteen stars.

Reverse: An open wreath partially encircles an eagle, which holds arrows and an olive branch on the reverse. Between the eagle's wings is an inscription of the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST." The name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," and the coin's face value, "ONE DOLLAR," are inscribed along the irm.

Beautifully Maintained MS66 with Green Label

This coin's grade comes on a green label. Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) graded the coin Mint State 66. That grade indicates that the coin was struck very well and has no traces of wear.The Green Label is only awarded to coins that prior to being submitted to NGC for certification were selected by Rare Coin Company of America (RARCOA) in their efforts to find superior quality examples including elements such as eye-appeal, strike, luster, or toning. Only specimens that are deemed to have these exceptional features per RARCOA's strict guidelines qualify for NGC's Green Label, allowing collectors to easily identify superior quality coins that have undergone this additional scrutiny in addition to NGC's certification process.
