Why add the 1885-O Morgan Silver Dollar From the Great Montana Collection NGC MS65 to your collection?

Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) experts graded this 1885-O Morgan Silver Dollar at the stunning Mint State 65 (MS65) level. The famous New Orleans Branch of the U.S. Mint struck silver dollars from metal purchased by the U.S. Government in response to the Bland-Allison Act of 1878. This act was orchestrated by powerful mining interests in the Western US who needed a customer with deep pockets to buy Comstock Lode silver. That silver was flooding the international markets and depressing the price. This customer was the US Government. The series was struck on 90% pure silver coin blanks containing .7734 oz. of bullion.

Morgan's First U.S. Coinage Assignment

The obverse design depicts Liberty, as modeled by Philadelphia teacher Anna Willis Williams. The designer and junior U.S. Mint engraver George T. Morgan regarded her profile as the most perfect he had seen. The reverse features the bald eagle, as required by U.S. coinage law on denominations larger than the dime.
