History, Information, and Value of 1882 Morgan Dollar
Value of 1882-O Morgan Silver Dollar
As a rule, New Orleans Mint pieces are more difficult to find with good strike and luster than are those from the other mints. The typical 1882-O Morgan Silver Dollar is lightly struck, particularly on the eagle’s breast feathers. Occasionally, a sharply defined coin can be found. There are no available proofs for this year because this is a mint branch.
1882-O Morgan Is A Common Circulated Coin, But You Must Sacrifice Some Quality: A fairly plentiful date in circulated grades of EF and AU, good news for those working on circulated silver Morgan $1 sets.
Easy To Find UNCs After Flooding of Market: After the Treasury releases of the early 1960s this date became readily available to interested collectors. Today’s collectors should have no difficulty finding a pleasing MS-64 or 65 coin. Cherrypick for strike and surface quality, as this date is often lacking in both departments.
The obverse text on the Morgan Dollar reads “Liberty; E Pluribus Unum; 1882.” 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.
