Why purchase this 1897-P Silver Morgan Dollar from the private collection of LaVere Redfield?

An astounding collection of 400,000 Morgan Dollars was discovered behind a false wall in the basement of LeVere Redfield's Reno, Nevada home following his death in 1977. Having grown up in poverty in Utah, Redfield had a mistrust for banks and the U.S. government, which led him to keep his hoard hidden under his own roof. This Morgan Dollar from the collection was minted in Philadelphia 1897, the year of Redfield's birth. The coin is struck from 0.7734 Troy oz. of .900 fine silver and is among a mintage of 2,822,000.

Silver Dollar Design by George T. Morgan

The portrait of Lady Liberty adorns the obverse, wearing a "LIBERTY" crown, framed by "E PLURIBUS UNUM," "1897" and thirteen stars.

The inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "ONE DOLLAR" accompany the image of a heraldic eagle holding an olive branch and three arrows on the reverse.
