Why order this Morgan 1885-O Silver Dollar From the Great Montana Collection
One of the largest private collections in American history was assembled by George Bouvier of Deer Lodge, Montana. He kept the hoard a secret until shortly before he died, when he informed a family friend of it. That friend told his family, who then uncovered the 17,000 coins. This piece was among them, giving you the chance to share in this historic find. It was struck from .7734 troy oz. of .900 fine silver at the New Orleans Mint, the "O" mint mark of which is on the reverse. You will receive the coin that is pictured on this page.
Classic Liberty Design by George T. Morgan
Both the obverse and the reverse were designed by George T. Morgan. On the obverse is his Liberty design, which broke from the tradition of portraying her as a Greek-style figure. Morgan instead chose an American-style model. She wears a Phrygian cap, a ribbon that bears her name, and a crown made from two staple American crops, cotton and wheat.
On the reverse, an eagle clutches arrows, symbols of military readiness, and an olive branch, a symbol of peace. A wreath wraps under it.
Uncirculated MS63 Toned
This coin was never circulated according to the experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), who graded it Mint State 63. It does, however, have some toning, which is something that many collectors consider desirable.
