Why add the 1885 Morgan Silver Dollar From the Great Montana Collection NGC MS63 to your collection?

This 1885 Morgan Silver Dollar was examined by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) and awarded the Mint State 63 (MS63) collector grade. It features the coveted Great Montana Collection pedigree. The coin was struck at the Philadelphia Branch of the United States Mint which was established in 1792 as the Nation's first Mint. The series was struck on 90% silver, 10% copper planchets which all contain .7734 oz. of silver.

One of the most collected designs in American coinage

The coin's designer, George T. Morgan, assistant to Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint, Charles Barber crafted this new Silver Dollar as his first assignment for the Mint. This iconic design which became known as the "Morgan Dollar" features the profile of Lady Liberty wearing a coronet on which her name is inscribed. She also wears a Phrygian cap and has wheat, English Ivy and oak leaves in her hair. The reverse of the coin features a laurel wreath that encircles a bald eagle clutching arrows and an olive branch.

MS63, Choice Uncirculated example

MS63 or "Choice Uncirculated" coins are examples with Mint luster, an average strike quality, pleasing eye appeal and some contact marks. The Great Montana Collection is a famous cache of Silver Dollars amassed by collector George Bouvier of Deer Lodge, Montana.
