  • Description:

    Although there were four main mints that produced the Morgan silver dollars, each mint had its own history and therefore, its own quirks that affected how each minted the Morgans. The Philadelphia Mint is the oldest mint in the US, being established in 1792. After the ratification of the Constitution, the Founding Fathers needed to establish a national identity and a means of commerce. At the time, Philadelphia was the capital of the US so it only made sense for the first mint to be built there. The Mint Act was also passed, during this time, to assign coins denominations based on their legal tender or metal fineness. This act also constituted that any coin in the US should feature "an impression emblematic of liberty." Your 1896 Morgan has been minted in Philadelphia, carries no mint mark, and is in very fine condition. Very fine condition shows a visible amount of wear on the surface, lending to the total lack of the original mint luster.
