Highly Sought Morgan Silver Dollars
The most sought-after Morgan Silver Dollars are certainly those sporting the best condition after so many years filled with the risk of wear and damage. To collectors, well-preserved coins are always the preferred addition to every collection. Unfortunately, coins of this age are rarely found in pristine condition. Further, collectors covet the earliest Morgan Silver Dollars. Coins produced in 1878 and 1879 are especially popular as they are the oldest available on the market today.
Pristine coins from the 1870s command higher premiums than most other Morgan Silver Dollars. There were often three or more different varieties of Morgan Dollars struck each year of production, so it is important to remember that some versions of the coin, such as the 1878-CC, are especially valuable and difficult to find.
