Obverse: The obverse features the profile of the allegorical Liberty wearing a small inscribed coronet. Curiously, she wears a Freedom cap as well. She has agricultural items woven into her curly locks, symbolizing the 19th Century farm-based American economy.
Reverse: The reverse features a smaller Bald Eagle with wings spread. He is surrounded by a laurel wreath. The motto "In God We Trust" appears above the eagle on this coin in Gothic lettering. This is the only appearance of Gothic Font in American numismatics.
Popular MS66 Issue
Mint State 66 coins are fully uncirculated coins. They have bright luster, an excellent strike and original surfaces. Morgans are especially desirable in higher, uncirculated grades like this one. To qualify for the Green Label, prior to being submitted to NGC for grading, a coin must first be identified by the numismatic experts at RARCOA for meeting a set of quality standards regarding luster, toning, eye-appeal, and strike. This two step process ensures only coins of exceptional quality will earn the right to carry the Green Label.
