1898-P Morgan Silver Dollar PCGS MS65
A Shining Example of American Craftsmanship!
The Morgan Silver Dollar is one of the most collected vintage silver dollars in the world. From 1878 to 1921, it rolled out of the Philadelphia mint to universal acclaim. However, one year stands above all others for quality of production -- 1898. These coins are arguably the best struck Morgans ever produced at the "Mother Mint," with dazzlingly lustrous surfaces and design elements that are thoroughly hammered onto each planchet. You can see this exceptional quality best in 1898 Philly Morgans that are highly graded, like this MS65-graded Morgan from GovMint.com.
The Morgan's iconic design comes to us courtesy of George T. Morgan, 7th Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint. Its obverse depicts a bust of Lady Liberty facing left, surrounded by a circle of stars and the inscriptions "LIBERTY," "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and the date 1898. The reverse's design is equally well-known: a soaring eagle with outstretched wings, holding an olive branch and arrows in its talons. The reverse's inscriptions include "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "ONE DOLLAR" and the phrase "IN GOD WE TRUST" in archaic lettering. All coins from this year are exceptionally attractive, but Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) has graded this coin MS65, meaning it will have significant eye appeal with virtually no marks. Of all the coins to collect from this year, this one deserves to move to the top of your list. Quantities are limited, however, so buy yours today!
