1878-S Morgan Silver Dollar NGC/PCGS MS63
First-Year Morgans from the San Francisco Mint
In the days of the Wild West, the silver dollar was king. These hefty, 90% fine silver coins circulated heavily throughout California, especially after the San Francisco Mint opened its doors and began striking what many consider to be the finest Morgan Silver Dollars struck by any mint. Collectors often seek out coins with the “S” mint mark for their sharp strikes, and every collector covets the first of any series.
These 1878-S Morgans are the first of their kind to bear the “S” mint mark of the San Francisco Mint. Struck more than 140 years ago, they’ve also been incredibly well preserved. You can secure one of these coins certified and graded by either the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) or the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) to be in Choice Uncirculated Mint State-63 (MS63) condition. Look elsewhere and you’ll find these same coins sold for as much as $195. Order now and save! Coin grading service varies.
- AN ENDANGERED SPECIES –While millions of Morgan Silver Dollars were struck from 1878 through 1921, massive silver meltings and the ravages of time have taken their toll. Today coin experts believe that only 15% of all Morgans ever struck remain in existence!
- AMERICAN ICON –The Morgan Silver Dollar is as American as the Wild West. That is mostly due to it being originally struck in the era of cowboys. These coins could have been flipped in saloons, robbed from trains, held by gunslingers, and traded between cattle rustlers.
- FIRST OF THEIR KIND –1878 was the first year Morgans were struck – and these hail from the San Francisco Mint, known for the quality of its strikes.
- GREAT QUALITY –Each of these 1878-S Morgan dollars are graded by either the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) or the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) as being in Choice Uncirculated Mint State-63 (MS63) condition. Coin grading service varies.
