  • Description:

    George T. Morgan was the English engraver who designed the famous Morgan silver dollar design. He was hired as the assistant engraver to the chief engraver, William Barber, at the US Mint. Before moving to the US, Morgan began his engraving career in England, where he was an apprentice to an engraver. Morgan worked at the mint for almost 40 years before earning the position of chief engraver when Barber died. Since the Morgan contains 90% silver, the government had to reach into their silver reserves and reauthorize the minting of the Morgans for completion. Because of the lack of silver, the Morgan's production had to stop in 1904. Your 1887 silver Morgan was minted in Philadelphia and is in extra fine condition, exhibiting wear on Lady Liberty's facial features and the eagle's feathers. Many collectors, who are new to the Morgan scene, prefer the extra fine condition. Even though there is a good amount of wear, the original mint luster is still noticeable.
