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

Order this product to get the exact coin depicted on this page. The coin was part of George Bouvier's hoard, which is now known as the Great Montana Collection. Bouvier quietly amassed the stash, which he hid in the walls of his home and under the floors of his shop. He told a family friend about it from his deathbed, and that friend told the family, who uncovered the coins in 1998. This piece was struck at the New Orleans Mint on a .7734 troy oz. planchet of .900 fine silver. It bears an "O" mint mark at the bottom of the reverse design.

Exquisite Liberty Design by George T. Morgan

George T. Morgan chose Anna Willess Williams, an American-style model, for Liberty rather than a Greek-style model, which was the tradition at the time. He shows her wearing a Phrygian cap that covers much of her hair, as well as a ribbon and a crown made from cotton and wheat. An eagle in the middle of a laurel wreath clutches arrows and an olive branch on the reverse.

Stunning MS63 Toned

This coin earned a Mint State 63 grade from Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), which is in the category of "Choice Uncirculated." It lacks any wear. There is, however, toning, which is a characteristic that many collectors seek out.
