Why add the 1888-O Morgan Silver Dollar Top 100 PCGS XF40 VAM-6 Oval O to your collection?

This 1888-O Morgan Silver Dollar has been graded Extremely Fine (XF40) by Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS). The New Orleans branch of the U.S. Mint was brought back online more than a decade after the Civil War ended, primarily to strike silver coinage. The flagship coin struck during this second period of production was the Morgan Silver Dollar. The series was struck on .7734 oz. .900 pure silver planchets. VAM (Van Allen-Mallis identified die varieties) collecting is a Morgan specialty for many collectors.

Design Excellence

This classic design was brought to fruition by George T. Morgan, who later became the 7th Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint. The obverse of the coin features Liberty's profile, facing left wearing a tiara inscribed "Liberty". The reverse of the coin features an eagle with wings spread. Beneath the eagle is a laurel wreath and beneath the central point of the wreath lies the O mint mark.

Scarce VAM-6 Oval O attribution

The bulk of Morgans featuring this VAM were released into circulation and are notably scarce in higher grades. This circulated XF40 coin shows plenty of detail and evidence of wear. The reverse features an oval O mint mark which was not used widely in 1888, most examples feature the round O mint mark.
