1879 U.S. Morgan Dollar PCGS MS64
The Bland-Allison Act of 1878 authorized minting of a new silver dollar of 0.900 fine silver. Initial reception of the coins was mixed. Many saw the Act as yet another example of successful lobbying by silver mining interests. The coins were often referred to as Bland dollars when first introduced and received little interest beyond political news of the day. Today, of course, this is among the most well known silver coins of the United States. The coin George T. Morgan designed is rich in history and a favorite among many collectors.
This 1879 Morgan Dollar is lustrous with a pleasing golden aura around the rim on both obverse and reverse. There is a notable mark in the field to left of Liberty's face, but that cannot suppress the amazing eye appeal of this very attractive coin.
