There is no coin from Americas past that is more sought after than the Morgan Silver Dollar. The introduction of the coin in 1878 marked the end of a five-year ban on silver coin production in the United States and helped usher in what is considered the golden age of coin design in America.
Ironically, one of Americas most beloved coins was designed by a British man. When Henry Richard Linderman, Director of the US Mint, sought out an individual to help redesign the nations silver coins in 1876, he reached out across the Pond to the United Kingdom. After communicating with the Deputy Master of the Royal Mint in London, Linderman hired 30-year-old George T. Morgan. Despite his youth, Morgan had established a reputation for tremendous coin design, but there were no positions available to him at the Royal Mint at that time.
Morgan Silver Dollar Coins with an MS63 grade from the NGC possess a mint luster that may be slightly impaired. Numerous small contact marks and/or a few heavy marks are visible on the coins surface. Small hairlines are likely to be visible without the assistance of magnification. Detracting scuff marks or defects in the coins strike may be present, but in general the coin is considered above average in condition.
George Morgan put Anna Willess Williams through five sittings to perfect his profile depiction of Lady Liberty on the obverse side of the coin. The reverse side of the coin bears the image of a bald eagle clutching arrows and an olive branch.
