History, Information, and Value of 1884 Morgan Dollar
Value of 1884-O Morgan Silver Dollar
The 1884-O Morgan Silver Dollar was minted in great quantity at the New Orleans Mint this year, when silver dollars were the only denomination produced at that facility. Examples are readily available in all Mint State grades. Worn pieces are abundant as well. Striking varies from poor, with no hair detail above Miss Liberty’s ear and little definition of breast feathers on the eagle, to very sharp. Typically, the striking varies from average to a bit above. Luster ranges from grainy to frosty. No proofs were minted at the New Orleans mint.
Circulated Coins are Not Often Pursued Because of Inexpensive Mint State Coins: Readily available in circulated grades of EF and AU but the cost for a Mint State coin is small enough that few collectors pursue worn specimens.
1884-O $1 Silver Morgans are Common: Readily available in all Mint State grades right through the ultra-gem level. There is no reason to avoid a Mint State-65 specimen for they are both plentiful, affordable and worth it.
The obverse text on the Morgan Dollar reads “Liberty; E Pluribus Unum; 1884.” 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.
