History, Information, and Value of 1882 Morgan Dollar
Value of 1882-S Morgan Silver Dollar
Large quantities of the 1882-S Morgan Silver Dollar exist in Mint State and are easily available. Many coins are heavily bagmarked and fit into the categories from MS-60 to MS-62. Striking ranges from sharp to somewhat weak, with most having above average strikes. Luster is typically deep, frosty and very attractive, similar to the 1881-S. No proofs were produced, as this was a branch mint.
1882-S $1 Silver Coin is Very Easy To Find Circulated: Always available in circulated grades with EF and AU not particularly challenging to find. Their worth will vary only on condition.
UNCs Made Readily Available Through Treasury Release: Though many coins were paid out in commerce at the time of striking, many bags were never released but were stored at the San Francisco Mint and at the Treasury building in Washington, DC. It is thought that one million or more examples of the date came out of hiding during the Treasury releases of the early 1960s.
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; 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. The reverse of the Morgan Dollar has an eagle in the center with its wings spread and a wreath surrounding.
