Morgan Dollars are one of the most popular of all U.S. coins. They were minted in Philadelphia, Carson City, Denver, and San Francisco.
Morgan Dollars were made from 1878 to 1921. 270,232,722 coins were melted under the Pittman Act of 1918 so mintage figures for Morgan Dollars are not necessarily a true indication of rarity.

Frosty white luster and very well struck with flashy semi proof-like surfaces. This popular first year Morgan from the Carson City mint has outstanding eye appeal.
CAC. Blast white with extremely heavy frost on the design creating stunning 'black & white' cameo contrast.
Well struck with frosty white luster and minimal marks. Ms. Liberty's cheek is particularly clean.

A fantastic blast white example of this popular Carson City dollar from the first year of the 'Morgan' series. The strike is razor sharp with highly reflective semi proof-like surfaces producing a cameo contrast against design elements that show heavy snow-white frost. Super!
This Superb Gem has rich radiant brilliant luster with a thin sliver of yellow toning at the rim. The strike is razor sharp and the beautiful surfaces show no significant marks. Only a single coin has graded numerically higher at PCGS.
A beautiful Gem example of this better first-year 'Morgan' with a "Strong" designation on the holder. This refers to the strength of the under-feathers which are very obvious on this example. The entire coin is well struck with a cream-white core and an attractive ring of blue, lavender, and gold toning at the rim.
Reverse of 1878. Frosty white design features contrast dramatically with mirrored fields on this beautiful Gem 'first-year 'Morgan'. A ring of gold at the rim attests to the originality of this piece.
Reverse of 1879. Crisp white and boldly struck with nearly mark-free surfaces.
Reverse of 1879. Beautiful satiny smooth surfaces with rich cream-white luster. The strike is razor sharp and there are no significant marks. An amazing coin that is tied for the finest graded at PCGS and NGC.
