History, Information, and Value of 1892 Morgan Dollar
Value of 1892-O Morgan Silver Dollar
The New Orleans Mint had struck Morgan dollars in earlier years with poor strike quality and little eye appeal. In 1977, however, a bag of 1,000 coins was examined and found to contain a number of fully struck gem pieces, a marvelous exception that could be worth multiples of the lesser struck coins. The majority of 1892-O Morgan Silver Dollars are flatly struck at the centers. No proofs were produced since New Orleans was a branch mint.
Coins in This Grade Will Be Easy Additions: EF and AU can be found with little or no difficulty at most numismatic venues.
Find High Grades, But Not Likely to Find Well Struck Coins: Mint State coins exist at every grade level with the preponderance of specimens found at MS-63 and 64. Finding a well-struck example of the date provides a challenge to today’s collectors, but such pieces can be found with patience and are well worth the effort.
The obverse text on the Morgan Dollar reads “Liberty; E Pluribus Unum; 1892.” 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.
