1883-P Morgan Silver Dollar PCGS MS64
These Morgans Hit the Street the Same Year the Brooklyn Bridge Opened!
In 1883, New Yorkers watched in awe as the Brooklyn Bridge was opened. There's no doubt many of the spectators carried Morgan Silver Dollars in their pockets as they watched this marvel of modern engineering finally accept its first vehicles and people. The bridge, designed by German-American Johann A. Roebling, had previously been tested on a much smaller scale in 1866 as the Roebling Suspension Bridge in Cincinnati, Ohio. However, it took 14 years to construct the bridge in Brooklyn, building an achievement that has lasted to this day. So too has the 1883 Morgan Silver Dollar remained a lasting achievement, now available to you today from GovMint.com.
With an obverse designed by George T. Morgan, 7th Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint, the Morgan Silver Dollar displays a proud Lady Liberty facing left, her head circled by stars. Inscribed on the coin are the words "LIBERTY," "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and the date 1883. The reverse of the coin depicts a soaring eagle clutching an olive branch and arrows in its talons, along with the words "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "ONE DOLLAR," and "IN GOD WE TRUST" in archaic lettering.
