United States of America, US Morgan $ 'S' Mint Mark MS64
The United States Silver Dollar or Cartwheel as it is known, was the currency that they used in
the old West. All those cowboy films you grew up with, the men went to the bar and spent
Silver Dollars. The Morgan Silver Dollar was made between 1878 and 1904, and then they struck
a somewhat similar coin in 1921. For our purposes the dates that count are 1878-1904.
George T. Morgan who designed this Silver Dollar, was actually British, so it makes them a little
closer to home. These are nice coins and ones that most collectors would be only too proud to
own. The hoard that we bought, all grade MS64 (Mint State 64 out of 70) which are much nicer
coins than we previously offered.
The coins available all have the ‘S’ mint mark of San Francisco, California. Each coin is
slabbed, that is sealed to protect it and graded so you know what you are getting. We do not like
slabs, but as they usually cost £10-£20 to have done. We do not think it makes it worth any more to
break open the slab. It also authenticates the coin and we don’t charge you any extra!
