Why buy this Morgan 1888 Silver Dollar?
This 1888 Morgan provides a fantastic opportunity to start or grow a collection of one of America's most iconic coins. The series started not long after the Civil War ended, and designer George T. Morgan struck the perfect combination of a united and unique identity with his designs. Morgans may be an important part of any collection of historic American coins, but in many cases they form complete collections by themselves.
