Why add the 1883-O Morgan Silver Dollar BU to your collection?
This 1883-O Morgan Silver Dollar is available in astounding Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The U.S. Mint in New Orleans had two distinct periods of operation. It first struck coins from 1838 through 1861 and then from 1879 until 1909. It was reopened in part to strike silver dollars which were minted there from 1879 through 1904. This iconic coin contains .7734 oz. of silver struck on a 90% pure planchet. It has a mintage of 8,725,000 and was once considered a hard coin to get due to the massive Morgan dollar melts. It remains popular with collectors today thanks to the GSA sales of the sixties and seventies.
Liberty's Perfect Face
George Morgan, a junior U.S. Mint engraver designed this iconic coin. Anna Willis Williams served as the model for Liberty's portrait on the obverse. The reverse features a Heraldic Eagle grasping an olive branch and arrows in its talons all encircled by a wreath.
What is BU?
A BU coin is also a Mint State coin. These coins have never been circulated and retain all design details and much of its attractive Mint luster. BU coins would equate to the solidly collectible MS60-MS62 grade levels on the Sheldon Scale. These BU coins will have some noticeable contact marks and original surfaces. BU coins offer good value to collectors who wish to have uncirculated coins in their collections.
