  • Description:

    Due to the numerous mishaps in 1878, the US Mint finally corrected them with the 1879 Morgan silver dollar. The 1879 Morgan exhibits the aesthetic changes made to the design of the coin, correcting the mistakes and unpleasant portrayal of the prominent eagle. Instead of 7 tail feathers, the eagle was awarded 8. Instead of the pathetic-looking eagle with a caved-in chest, the eagle was given a proud and puffed chest instead. Your 1879 Morgan was minted in Philadelphia and doesn't carry a mint-mark. The Philadelphia Mint was the first mint to be established in the US. The US desperately needed an identity but also a means to international commerce so the Founding Fathers decided that a national mint was the answer. The Mint Act officially announced the opening of the Philadelphia Mint and also instituted guidelines for the newly minted currency. Your 1879 Morgan is considered to be in fine condition, with a smooth surface.
