The Morgan Dollar holds a special place in U.S. coinage as it was the first coin to feature Lady Liberty with an American look, rather than the traditional Greek style. Her cap is adorned with wheat and cotton as a tribute to America's agricultural history.
The image of the eagle was also updated for the Morgan Dollar, showing a proportionally correct eagle with beautifully designed feathers. He carries an olive branch, showing America's desire for peace, and is perched atop a bundle of arrows, signifying America's readiness to defend her borders against attack.
The Morgan Dollar flooded the markets from 1878-1904. Nearly two decades after production halted, the Morgan Dollar was seen again for one year only, in 1921, due to a renewed desire for this iconic, beautiful design.
Collect Morgan Silver Dollars that escaped melting twice.
Morgan Silver Dollars were subject to two different government-authorized melts, so most of the Morgan Silver Dollars you find on the market today primarily originate from the discovery in 1963 of almost 3,000 bags of the U.S. Silver coins in the vaults of the U.S. Treasury in Washington D.C. The first melt of Morgan Silver Dollars was authorized under the Pittman Act of 1918, and as a result, over 270 million Morgan Silver Dollars were melted into Silver bullion. U.S. Silver coins, including Morgan Silver Dollars and Peace Silver Dollars, were once again ordered to be melted in 1942 under the World War II Silver Act that provided Silver for wartime use. The Silver bullion coins you buy today are rarer because of the melts.
Four main hoards of Morgan Silver Dollars by citizens helped preserve the U.S. coins.
Some of the Morgan Silver Dollars you can buy today originate from four different hoards assembled by private citizens. One popular hoarder of Morgan Silver Dollars was LaVere Redfield, an eccentric man who valued physical Precious Metals assets over paper currency. Redfield bought the U.S. Silver coins by the bag from banks, and stashed them in his basement. At the time of his death, Redfield had amassed somewhere between 520,000 and 650,000 Silver Dollars, and eventually there were auctioned off for 7.3 million dollars to the A-Mark Coin Company.
This 100-coin bag of Morgan Silver Dollars contains Morgan Dollars of random dates between 1879 and 1904, adding collectible potential for dates and mintmarks.

The 70 to 30 split of VG to G seemed to diminish the value of the additional price paid for a listing of VG/VF. However the dates are all readable but most of the major detail is faint to gone on about 30% of the bag. The balance ranges from G to VG with three that I would consider VF. Your results may be different this was mine.
- Value (low premium over spot)
Merchant response: Hi RoadDog: We truly apologize that your purchase didn't meet/exceed your expectations. On average, Morgan Dollars in Very Good condition do not have too much detail left due to extensive circulation. They will be well worn, but the design will still be clear, although flat and lacking detail. For example, Liberty's hair will be worn smooth but all the letters and numbers will be clear. The eagle will be outlined on the reverse but will not have much feather detail remaining. We pride ourselves on our 100% satisfaction guarantee policy.
