  • Description:

    George T. Morgan was the English engraver responsible for the marvelous Morgan silver dollar design. Morgan started out in England, where he learned and mastered all of the ways of an engraver. Then, he moved to the US where he was hired as the assistant engraver to chief engraver, William Barber, at the US Mint. Morgan worked at the mint for almost 40 years before earning the position of chief engraver when Barber died. The Morgan dollar was in production from 1878-1904, then one last production in 1921, before the Peace dollar took over. Since the Morgan contains 90% silver, it took the government many bills and repeals to afford to produce tons of silver dollars. Reaching into their silver reserves, the government reauthorized the minting of these Morgans to completion. Your 1887 silver Morgan was minted in Philadelphia and is in brilliant uncirculated condition, similar to a MS62.
