Why purchase this Great Montana Collection 1888 Morgan Silver Dollar?

This 1888 Silver Morgan Dollar gives collectors the chance to share in one of the great finds of recent years, the Great Montana Collection. The collection was assembled by George Bouvier of Deer Lodge, Montana and consisted of more than 17,000 pieces. This piece was part of the tenth anniversary Morgan issue. It was struck from .7734 Troy oz. of .900 fine silver at the Philadelphia Mint.

Groundbreaking Liberty Design by George T. Morgan

Coin designer George T. Morgan, for whom this coin is named, departed from numismatic tradition by choosing an American-style model, Anna Willess Williams, rather than a Greek-style model. The left-side portrait shows her wearing a ribbon that bears an inscription of her name, a Phrygian cap, which symbolizes her freedom, and a crown of staple American crops, cotton and wheat.

On the reverse, an eagle stretches its wings outward and upward as it holds arrows, symbols of military readiness, and an olive branch, a symbol of peace, in its talons. The national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," is inscribed between its wings, while a laurel wreath mostly encircles it.

Uncirculated MS63 VAM-11A

Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) labeled this coin VAM-11A and graded it Mint State 63. MS63 coins have moderate hairlines and abrasions and slightly weak to average strikes.
