History, Information, and Value of 1880 Morgan Dollar
Value of 1880-S Morgan Silver Dollar
The only silver coins produced at the San Francisco Mint in 1880 were 1880-S Morgan silver dollars. They were produced with care and usually with precise die spacing. Today, they are valued and admired for their quality. The 1880-S combines an excellent strike and luster with a plentiful supply in the marketplace. Most examples have deep, frosty luster of great beauty. Keep in mind that no proof strikes were issued.
All 1880-S Coins Are Fairly Common: Always around in circulated grades with no shortage of EF and AU pieces for those working on circulated Morgan dollar sets.
Bag Hoards Produced Beautiful MS Survivors: Take your pick, MS-60 to 65 or even higher, and you should be able to locate an example without much difficulty. Much of this mintage was stored at the San Francisco Mint until at least 1913 and beginning in the 1950s bag quantities of the date were released, especially in the early 1960s by the Treasury.
The obverse text on the Morgan Dollar reads “Liberty; E Pluribus Unum; 1880.” The reverse text on the Liberty dollar reads “United States of America; In God We Trust; One Dollar; S.” The obverse of the silver one dollar coin has a bust of a female facing the left wearing a cap and small crown, with flowers tucked in her hair and stars surrounding the border.
