Why get this 1885-O Great Montana Collection Morgan Silver Dollar?

The Great Montana Collection was assembled quietly by George Bouvier, who amassed over 17,000 pieces unbeknownst to anyone. On his deathbed, Bouvier told a family friend about it, and he in turn told Bouvier's family. They recovered the collection from the walls of his home and under the floors of his shop. Now, you can own this coin, which was a part of the famous stash! It was struck on a one ounce planchet of .7734 troy oz. of .900 fine silver and bears the New Orleans Mint's "O" mint mark at the base of the reverse design.

Vintage Liberty Design by George T. Morgan

George T. Morgan designed both the obverse and reverse. The obverse is known for its departure from the tradition of portraying Liberty as a Greek-style figure in favor of showing her as an American-style figure. She wears a cotton and wheat crown and a Phrygian cap that covers much of her curly hair. Morgan's reverse image features an eagle holding arrows and an olive branch within a laurel wreath.

Well Preserved MS63* Toned

Many collectors love toning on coins, and that is one of the features of this stunning coin. Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) also found that it lacks any signs of wear and graded it Mint State 63* (Star), which qualifies as "Choice Uncirculated."
