Why add this Mint State 1899-O Morgan Silver Dollar to your collection?
The Morgan Silver Dollar was produced by the U.S. Mint for a total of twenty-eight years, from 1878-1904 and again in 1921. In 1918, the Pittman Act was ratified as an emergency wartime measure, authorizing the melting of 350 million silver dollars for the purpose of selling the bullion to Great Britain and the striking of new U.S. silver dollars. The actual amount of silver dollars culled was approximately 270 million, many of which have been determined to be New Orleans Mint releases. This 1899-O Morgan Silver Dollar from 0.7734 Troy oz. of .900 fine silver was one of those spared from melting.
George T. Morgan's Silver Dollar Design
Lady Liberty is depicted on the obverse wearing a "LIBERTY" inscribed crown. The image is encircled by thirteen stars, "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "1899."
An eagle grasping three arrows and an olive branch adorns the reverse. Inscriptions include "IN GOD WE TRUST," "ONE DOLLAR," "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and the New Orleans "O" Mint mark.
