PRE-1921 90% SILVER MORGAN DOLLAR (1878-1904) CIRCULATED VG OR BETTER
Coin will be in VG or better condition and will consist of a random date and mint mark from 1878-1904.
The left profile of Lady Liberty, modelled by teacher and philosophical writer Anna Willess Williams in this design made by George T. Morgan is shown on the obverse side while the reverse side shows a bald eagle clutching an olive branch in one talon and a bundle of arrows in the other talon and the eagle is surrounded by "United States of America", "One Dollar," and "In God We Trust."
The Morgan dollar is special as it is the first coin to feature Lady Liberty with an American look, rather than the traditional Greek style, and her cap is adorned with wheat and cotton in honor of America's agricultural history.
The eagle has beautifully designed feathers. The olive branch he carries represents America's desire for peace, and the bundle of arrows signifies America's readiness to defend herself against attack.
