History, Information, and Value of 1890 Morgan Dollar
Value of 1890-O Morgan Silver Dollar
The 1890-O Morgan Silver Dollar is plentiful in circulated grades as well as in lower Mint State grades. The majority of examples are lightly struck in various areas. Some that were struck from overused dies will show flow lines and granularity. The most sharply struck coins will take some searching. Luster is usually attractive and rich on the 1890-O. No 1890-O proof coins were minted since the New Orleans mint is a branch mint.
Easy to Find Circulated 1890-O $1 Silver Coin: Always available in EF and AU with not too much difficulty of acquisition.
High Grade UNCs May Not Be Worth As Much As You Think: Name your grade and it is no doubt available, even at the ultra-gem level though those pieces should be considered very elusive. Find a Mint State-64 example with a sharp strike and frosty luster and you’ve hit a home run.
The obverse text on the Morgan Dollar reads “Liberty; E Pluribus Unum; 1890.” 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.
