The 90% silver .7734 oz. ASW Morgan dollars from the Carson City Mint occupy a special place in the hearts of collectors. These coins have generally lower mintages than their San Francisco and Philadelphia counterparts and they are typically better struck than those from New Orleans. The Mint at Carson City struck silver and gold coinage. The silver came primarily from the famous Comstock Lode silver mine.

The Goddess Liberty is shown on the obverse of this coin. She is wearing a small crown and has English Ivy in her curly hair. Anna Williams sat as the model for this image. The iconic reverse of the coin is a departure from earlier heraldic eagle imagery. The eagle appears taller and leaner than designs on earlier coins. The Eagle is depicted gripping arrows and an olive branch in the claws as is wings are spread overhead. The designer of the coin was George T, Morgan, who later became the Seventh Chief Engraver of the United States Mint. At the time that the Morgan dollar was designed he was an assistant engraver.

Coins that grade Very Good have full rims and clearly discernable devices. Legends are typically legible despite the significant wear on the coin.
