A Hoard of 1881 San Francisco Morgans Discovered . . . in Maine?
The 1,000 Secrets of the Maine Cabin Hoard
At GovMint.com, our buyers are constantly on the lookout for fantastic coins -- especially when they come with incredible stories. Recently, we received a call about a discovery deep in the woods of Maine. Tucked away for decades within the walls of a cabin was a heavy sack of coins. However, these weren't just any coins, they were Morgan Silver Dollars. 1,000 of them. From 1881. Minted in San Francisco. In GORGEOUS Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) condition! Needless to say, we jumped at the opportunity to bring them to our vault. And now, these Morgans are ready to be a part of your collection!
The Coins That Were Never Meant for the East Coast
Let's take a quick moment to consider a few facts. Morgan fans know that the most brilliantly struck Morgan Silver Dollars were produced by the artisans at the San Francisco Mint. However, many of these Morgans never crossed the Rocky Mountains, let alone the Mississippi River. Most circulated in the heart of the Wild West only to be lost to the ravages of time. Plus, it would be natural to expect that any Morgans found on the East Coast would be from either the Philadelphia Mint or the New Orleans Mint. So, why did 1,000 coins make the more than 3,200 mile journey between coasts, only to be found untouched over 130 years later? It's that mysterious story that makes this hoard all the more intriguing!
