Why buy this 1884-O Silver Morgan Dollar from the Great Montana Collection
This Silver 1884-O Morgan Dollar was discovered as part of the Great Montana Collection, one of the biggest discoveries in recent decades. It was assembled by George Bouvier of Deer Lodge, Montana, who told a friend about it as he was dying. The friend informed Bouvier's family, who then found over 17,000 pieces. This coin was struck from .7734 troy oz. of .900 fine silver at the New Orleans Mint and bears an "O" mint mark at the bottom of its reverse design.
Striking Liberty Design by George T. Morgan
George T. Morgan, from whom the coin gets its name, designed both faces. The obverse bears his Liberty design, which broke from numismatic tradition in that Morgan used an American-style model rather than a Greek-style one. She has long hair that is largely covered by a Phrygian cap. She also wears a ribbon on which there is an inscription of her name, "LIBERTY," and a crown made from two staple American crops, cotton and wheat.
An eagle is at the center of the reverse. It stretches its wings upward. A laurel wreath stretches from just under one wing to just under the other.
Well Preserved MS64 Toned
Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) gave this toned coin a grade of Mint State 64. MS64 coins have average or better strikes and only small hairlines or marks and other minuscule imperfections.
