History, Information, and Value of 1887/6 Morgan Dollar
Value of 1887/6 Morgan Silver Dollar
In the preparation of dies for 1887 Morgan Silver Dollar coinage at the Philadelphia Mint, some unused 1886-dated dies were lightly resurfaced and punched with 1887 dates. There is significant demand for the overdate 1887/6, VAM-2 and examples are rare in all grades. The overdate is not easily seen, and some collectors have chosen not to include examples in their collections. Popularity and worth have gone up and down over the years. Strike quality is average and most coins have a deep mint frost. No proofs of this coin were produced.
This Rare 1887/6 $1 Coin is Most Common in Circulated Condition: Circulated 1887/6 dollars can be cherrypicked by looking for that tiny hook-like remnant of the underlying 6 at the base of the 7 in the date. EF and AU pieces are the norm.
Search for the Highest Grade You Can Afford for Your Collection: The date is always available to those who search. MS-60 to 62 coins are found more frequently than pieces in a higher grade. MS-63 and finer coins are always in demand. We suggest a lustrous and boldly rendered example at MS-64 is well worth the search.
The obverse text on the Morgan Dollar reads “Liberty; E Pluribus Unum; 1887; 1886.” The reverse text on the Liberty dollar reads “United States of America; In God We Trust; One Dollar.” 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.
