History, Information, and Value of 1881 Morgan Dollar
Value of 1881-O Morgan Silver Dollar
The 1881-O Morgan silver dollar is common in AU, or “slider Uncirculated” grade, and high-grade circulated coins are very common as well. Finding a high quality 1881-O should not be too difficult. The strike is usually deep, with some exceptions. Luster varies from frosty to attractive, to somewhat grainy and dull. (Because this is a branch mint, no proofs were produced.)
Circulated New Orleans Dollars Are Common: Typically found in lightly circulated grades, EF to AU, and finding a nice AU presents only a modest challenge to those so inclined.
Plenty of Perfect Condition Coins Are Still Around: Plentiful in Mint State, Gems included. Look for coins with few contact marks and good luster. MS-64 is an ideal grade that combines quality and affordability.
The obverse text on the Morgan Dollar reads “Liberty; E Pluribus Unum; 1881.” The reverse text on the Liberty dollar reads “United States of America; In God We Trust; One Dollar; O.” 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. The reverse of the Morgan Dollar has an eagle in the center with its wings spread and a wreath surrounding.
