(1878-1904) Morgan Silver Dollars (BU) The coinage law of 1873 made no provision for the standard silver dollar. During the lapse in coinage of this denomination, the gold dollar became the unit coin, and the trade dollar was used for commercial transactions with the Orient. Resumption of coinage of the silver dollar was authorized by the Act of February 28, 1878, known as the Bland-Allison Act. The weight (412-1/2 grains) and fineness (.900) were to conform with the Act of January 18, 1837. George T. Morgan, formerly a pupil of William Wyon in the Royal Mint in London, designed the new dollar. His initial M is found at the truncation of the neck, at the last tress. It also appears on the reverse on the left-hand loop of the ribbon. Coinage of the silver dollar was suspended after 1904, when demand was low and the bullion supply became exhausted. Under provisions of the Pittman Act of 1918, 270,232,722 silver dollars were melted, and later, in 1921, coinage of the silver dollar was resumed. The "Coin Images" is for illustration purposes to represent coin type and an indicator of the quality of the item. Actual product may vary in dates and mint marks."

Morgan, whose initial "M" appears on the obverse, was in charge of the design for the new 1878 dollar coin. The 1889-CC dollar coins are of particular interest as 350,000 of these are recorded to be minted, but 325, 000 were melted the same year. Dollar coins from that year and CC mintmark range from $1,750 to $531,000. Take a look again at this slot at your album. Luck might be with you! Morgan dollars minted from 1878-1890 measure 38.1 mm. They are made of 90% silver and 10% copper, and each weighs 26.73 grams. Morgan dollars were coined at the Philadelphia, New Orleans, Carson City and San Francisco Mints.
