Classic Liberty Design by George T. Morgan
Like the reverse, the obverse was designed by George T. Morgan, for whom the coin is named. Morgan chose Anna Willess Williams, an American-style model, for Liberty, breaking with the tradition of modeling her after a Greek-looking woman. Rendered in left-side profile, she dons a crown made from two American crops, cotton, a Southern crop, and wheat, a primarily Northern crop. She also wears a Phrygian cap as a symbol of her freedom. Thirteen stars are split to either side along the rim, joining the two rim inscriptions, "E PLURIBUS UNUM" (From many, one) and "1889."
On the reverse, a wreath wraps under an eagle, which holds arrows and an olive branch in its talons. The olive branch represents a preference for peace, while the arrows are a reminder to all that America will defend her values when necessary. The bird stretches its wings upward, and the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," is inscribed between them. "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "ONE DOLLAR" are inscribed along the rim.
Well Preserved MS64
The experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) awarded this coin a grade of Mint State 64. That means that it lacks any signs of wear and has an above average strike. It also features some nice toning.
