  • Description:

    The 7 over 8 tail feathers became one of the most popular mistakes in coin history! With a competitive mintage of only 500,000, these coins don't last long in our inventory! There are usually 7 of the eagle's tail feathers on the reverse but a mistake in stamping occurred, thus making another tail feather visible and causing 8 tail feathers instead of 7. The US Mint switched the number of tail feathers from 8 to 7 a year from now so this coin is a novelty for any collector. This popular error has also increased the numismatic value of the coin and is a key coin for any Morgan silver dollar collection. Your 1878 7 over 8 Morgan silver dollar was struck in the first mint in the US, the Philadelphia Mint, and is in very fine condition.
