The Morgan Silver Dollar is one of America’s most famous collectible coins, its history intertwined with that of America’s “Wild West” frontier whose settlement unfolded during the year it was issued between 1878 and 1904. These coins were struck at multiple branch mints across the nation, and some of the rarest surviving specimens come from the long-lost New Orleans Mint. Sometimes called the “forgotten” Morgans due to their rarity on the collectors’ market, such coins are particularly hard to find in uncirculated quality. For instance, coins with Mint State 64 quality and the “O” mint mark from 1884 have a survival estimate of just over 85,000 pieces. JM Bullion now offers such a coin, the 1884-O Morgan Silver Dollar Coin, for online purchase.

PCGS is a leading third-party coin grading service that has set the international standard for the authentication of rare coins for well over three decades. They provided the certification of Mint State 64 for these coins: meaning that they show average strike and luster, scattered contact marks, and hairline scratches that may occur in primary focal areas, and have an attractive eye appeal.
The 1884-O Morgan Silver Dollar Coin comes in a tamper-proof plastic slab with a label that identifies this coin grade. JM Bullion fully insures each shipment against even the most remote chance of loss or damage in transit.
Lady Liberty, a long-lived allegorical symbol of American national identity, appears on the obverse side in a Phrygian cap, along with the inscriptions “E PLURIBUS UNUM” and “1884.” Thirteen decorative stars appear at the rim, representing the Union’s founding states.
A heraldic eagle is featured on the reverse, clutching a bundle of arrows and an olive branch in its talons. This is accompanied by the “O” mint mark and the lettering “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “ONE DOLLAR,” and “IN GOD WE TRUST.”
