The Morgan Silver Dollar – Extra Fine (1878 – 1904) is an iconic example of a silver legal tender coin struck during America’s “golden age” of hard money. The Morgan Silver Dollar was designed by George T. Morgan and was the business coin of choice in early frontier towns of the old West.
The Morgan Silver Dollar – Extra Fine (1878 – 1904) contains 0.77 ounce of pure silver and saw wide usage in business transactions both in this country and abroad. These coins were minted in the San Francisco Mint (S Mint Mark), Denver Mint (D Mint Mark), Philadelphia Mint (No Mint Mark), New Orleans Mint (O Mint Mark) and the Carson City Mint (CC). The mint mark is on the reverse of the coin, below the wreath under the Eagle’s tail.
