Philadelphia Morgans from the Height of the Comstock Lode
In the 1880s, Nevada’s Comstock Lode was in full production, with loads of silver making its way East for striking at the Philadelphia Mint. Among the coins struck were these Morgan Silver Dollars, minted in 90% fine silver. The Morgan circulated heavily around the United States, and eventually as much as 85% of all Morgans struck wound up being worn down or melted for their silver.
Incredibly, we’ve located 1887-dated Morgans struck at the “Mother Mint” in Philadelphia that are still in phenomenal condition. In fact, each coin available here has been graded by either the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) or the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) in Gem Brilliant Uncirculated Mint State-65 (MS65) condition! Grading service varies.
