Why add the 1888-O Morgan Silver Dollar Top 100 PCGS XF45 VAM-21 Oval O to your collection?

This 1888-O Morgan Silver Dollar has been graded Extremely Fine 45 (XF45) by Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) and features the coveted VA-21 Oval O attribution. It was struck at the New Orleans branch of the U.S. Mint. The Morgan dollar series was the series struck the most during this branch mint's widely known second period of operation. Morgans were struck on .7734 oz. 900 fine silver planchets. Collectors Van Allen and Mallis began to identify die varieties and parings in Morgan dollars and published a landmark "VAM" book focusing on this specialty for many Morgan dollar collectors.

Breathtaking Design

The obverse features Liberty's portrait, facing left. She has an inscribed crown and agricultural motifs in her hair. The reverse features a bald eagle encircled by a laurel wreath. Beneath the ribbon on the wreath is the Oval O mint mark.

Tough to find Oval O with VAM-21 attribution

Many Morgans featuring this scarce "Oval O" mint mark were heavily circulated and are difficult to find in high grades. This circulated XF45 coin shows circulated design details but has decent eye appeal. The reverse has the scarce oval O mint mark which was not used widely in 1888, most New Orleans Morgans from 1888 have the round O mint mark.
