Why add the 1896 Morgan Silver Dollar Top 100 PCGS MS63 VAM-19 8 in Denticle from the California Collection to your collection?

This choice 1896 Morgan Silver Dollar is available in the astounding Mint State 63 (MS63) grade as determined by Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS). The U.S. Mint began striking Morgan silver dollars in 1878 through 1904 and one last time in 1921. This iconic coin contains .7734 oz. of silver struck on a .900 pure planchet. This issue was struck at the Nation's primary coinage facility, the U.S. Mint in Philadelphia. This one has the VAM-19 "8 in Denticle" attribution and is a popular "Top 100" variety.

Liberty's Perfect Face

Liberty's portrait appears on the obverse. The reverse features a Heraldic Eagle firmly holding arrows and an olive branch in his talons. The design is completed by a laurel wreath and the motto "In God We Trust."

What is MS63? What is a VAM?

These brilliant coins have never seen circulation. They have all design details and much of their original mint luster. These coins will have some bag marks and will display their completely original surfaces. VAMs are Morgan die varieties. This VAM-19 "8 in Denticle" is one of several Morgan dollars misplaced digits from the date. The 8 was re-punched. The top curve of the 8 appears in the denticles.
