This 1885-O Morgan Silver Dollar achieved the solid Mint State 63 (MS63) collector grade from the experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). The coin was struck on a .900 pure silver planchet containing .7734 oz. of silver bullion. The New Orleans Mint was established in 1838 and supplied circulating coinage to Southern and Western states. The 1885-O Morgan Silver Dollar had a total mintage of 9,185,000 coins.
Iconic Liberty Design
The design of the Morgan Silver Dollar was a departure from the previous designs on the U.S. Trade dollar and the Seated varieties previously struck. This obverse features a portrait of Liberty's head, as envisioned by George T. Morgan. The portrait was modeled by teacher Anna Williams. The reverse featured on the series was less of a design departure and favored the powerful bald eagle designs of preceeding silver dollars. The iconic eagle is featured holding an olive branch and arrows. The Morgan design adds a laurel wreath surrounding the eagle.
