The silver dollar that started a legend: the first-year 1878-P Morgan
Originally, George T. Morgan designed it with seven feathers, then one more was added for a fuller look. Later the Morgan Silver Dollar was changed because experts stepped forward to critique the design claiming bald eagles in fact have an odd number of feathers—so a transitional seven over eight feather design was issued. A revised 7 tail feather design was struck later in 1878 to correct the mistake, which created a unique collector variation, especially because it was only minted in Philadelphia.
This 1878-P 7TF Morgan Silver Dollar is a first and last all-in-one: it’s a first year issue 1878 Philadelphia Mint Morgan Silver Dollar and it’s also the last of three reverse tail feather varieties struck during its first year. Each comes in Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) condition. Order yours today!
