Why Make This MS62 1887 VAM-12 Alligator Eye Morgan Dollar the Next Addition to Your Collection?

Originally, the Morgan dollar was issued for circulation from 1878 through 1904. These coins are collected for a number of reasons, including the scarcity of some specimens and the history surrounding them. This Morgan dollar was struck at the Philadelphia Mint in 1887 and displays one of the most well-known die varieties, VAM-12. This die variety is also known as the Alligator Eye variety. Only some 1887 Morgan dollars display this and this variety is even on the Top 100 list.

Alligator Eye Morgan Dollar

The obverse of the coin features a highly detailed Liberty design created by George T. Morgan. Since this is the VAM-12 variety, an extra line can be seen at the front of Liberty's eye that makes it look like an alligator eye.

The reverse was designed by Morgan as well. A bald eagle is pictured here with arrows and an olive branch in its talons. The face value is located on this side and "IN GOD WE TRUST" is inscribed between the eagle's wings.
