Why buy this Morgan 1886-O Silver Dollar?

This 1886-O Silver Morgan Dollar is in exceptional condition for a coin of its type in site of its mintage of 10,710,000 pieces. That is because few of the original bags survived the Pittman melting, and the coins that survive were released into circulation. It was struck from .900 fine silver at the New Orleans Mint, which is represented by an "O" Mint mark on the reverse.

Stunning Liberty Design by George T. Morgan

This coin gets its name from George T. Morgan, who designed both of its faces. On the obverse is a left-side portrait of Liberty that he designed using Anna Willess Williams as a model. His choice of Williams marked a turning point in American numismatics because it would make for the first time that Liberty was depicted as an American-style figure rather than a Greek one. He shows her wearing a ribbon that bears her name, "LIBERTY," a crown made from two important American crops, cotton and wheat and a Phrygian cap, which is a symbol of her freedom.

On the reverse is the national bird, an eagle. It holds arrows an olive branch in its talons. Between its wings, which stretch upward, is the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST."

About Uncirculated 58

This coin was graded About Uncirculated 58 by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation. That grade indicates that it has slight wear on the design's highest points but retains full details.
