Notorious 132-year-old "Tombstone" Morgan Silver Dollars! Did Wyatt Earp hold this coin?

The day that bullets flew at Tombstone, Arizona’s O.K. Corral in 1881, two American legends were born. The first was a tale of Wild West justice. The second: a Silver Dollar that would come to be known as the "Tombstone" Morgan.

This was the big silver coin that paid the poker bets, bar tabs and general store bills of upstanding citizens and outlaws alike. One or two might even have been tucked in the vest pocket of Wyatt Earp (one of the few men left standing) when he gunned down the Clanton and McLaury brothers that fateful day!

While they last, you can own an authentic 1881-S Tombstone Morgan for under $100 - a vintage Silver Dollar struck at the San Francisco Mint and named for that infamous gunfight in the silver mining boomtown. Considered by numismatic experts to be one of the finest Morgans ever minted, finding any quantity of these historic 132-year-old Silver Dollars has become increasingly difficult with every passing year.

In fact, it’s estimated that only 15% of all the Morgan dollars ever struck have survived to this day. And even fewer exist in uncirculated condition! That means that for every 100 silver dollars struck, 85 of them have been worn out, lost, or melted. So you can bet that these Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) Tombstone Silver Dollars won’t last long.

Don’t wait to add this legendary Morgan to your collection - order now!

Mint Name
San Francisco - S
Established in 1853 to strike coins from California’s newly-discovered vast reserves of gold, the San Francisco branch of the United States Mint is famous for the quality, lustrous Morgan Silver Dollars produced at "The Granite Lady" from 1878 to 1921. After moving to a new building in 1937, coin production at the San Francisco mint shut down in 1955. A shortage caused regular coin production to resume in 1965. While the mintage of circulating coins ceased in 1981, proof coins and commemoratives are still struck at the San Francisco Mint today.
U.S. Mint
Created by the United States Congress through the Coinage Act of 1792, the United States Mint opened its first building in Philadelphia in 1793. Today, the U.S. Mint strikes circulating coins, as well as special collector coins and sets at the "Mother Mint" of Philadelphia and the branch mints of Denver, San Francisco and West Point.
