Why add the 1878-1904 Random Date Morgan Silver Dollar Cull to your collection?
These 1878-1904 Random Date Morgan Silver Dollar Culls have seen it all. The series is one of the most collected in all of American Numismatics. The series came into being as a result of the Bland-Allison Act which required the US Government to buy and coin silver every month from Western Mining interests. It was struck from 1878 until 1904 and again in 1921. Morgan dollars were struck at five US Mints. The ones included here will be from the Philadelphia, San Francisco and New Orleans branches. The coins were struck on 90% silver planchets which contain .7734 oz ASW.
George T. Morgan's Classic Design
English immigrant and later chief Engraver of the US Mint George T. Morgan designed this iconic coin as his first assignment for the Mint after his arrival in the US. The obverse features Lady Liberty's portrait while the reverse features a Heraldic Bald Eagle surrounded by a laurel wreath.
What exactly is a "cull" anyway?
A cull is a coin that has been put through everything. These examples will be well-worn, perhaps holed, bent, have rim dings or graffiti. They could be worn slick, rimless, perhaps dateless. They may have been tooled, cleaned or polished.
These can make excellent "flipping coins," pocket pieces or gifts for the budding young Numismatists in your life! Order one or order a tube of these iconic 1878-1904 Random Date Morgan Silver Dollar Culls from ModernCoinMart today.
