History, Information, and Value of 1890 Morgan Dollar
Value of 1890 Morgan Silver Dollar
Mint State and circulated pieces of the 1890 Morgan Silver Dollar are very common if not plentiful because of the Philadlephia Mint’s mass production. Most 1890 dollars are poorly struck, from dies spaced too far apart or worn beyond their useful life. Bagmarks are typical on lower grade pieces, the result of Treasury storage and handling, which makes them worth less. Luster on the 1890 is generally dull, and often grainy. Some Proofs of the date are sharply struck while others are soft and unappealing. Look for bold design elements and cameo contrast, a challenge to today’s Morgan specialists.
Mid Grade $1 Coins Should Be Easy to Locate: Always available in all grades up to AU, though low-grade pieces tend to disappear from the scene when the price of silver jumps.
Find a Crisp UNC for Your Collection: Readily available in all grades though finding a coin with crisp details and something other than soft unattractive luster can be a great challenge.
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.” 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.
