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

Deer Lodge, Montana resident George Bouvier assembled one of the largest private hoards in American history. He kept the hoard a secret until he told a friend shortly before he passed away. The friend informed his family, and they uncovered a collection of over 17,000 pieces. This 1885-O Morgan Silver Dollar gives you the chance to own a piece of that collection. It was struck from .7734 troy oz. of .900 fine silver at the New Orleans Mint, which is represented by an "O" mint mark on the reverse. You will receive the coin that is depicted on this page.

Iconic Liberty Design by George T. Morgan

George T. Morgan broke new ground with his Liberty design by choosing an American-style model, Anna Willess Williams, rather than a Greek-style model, as had been the custom. He shows the figure in left-side profile wearing a Phrygian cap, a ribbon with the word "LIBERTY," and a wreath made from two staple American crops, cotton and wheat.

On the reverse, an eagle spreads its wings while clutching arrows and an olive branch, symbols of military readiness and peace, respectively. A wreath arches under the bird.

Uncirculated MS63 Toned

Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) indicated that this coin has some toning, which many collectors find attractive. NGC also graded the coin Mint State 63, which means that it was never used in circulation.
