History, Information, and Value of 1894 Morgan Dollar
Value of 1894-O Morgan Silver Dollar
The 1894-O Morgan Silver Dollar is scarce in Mint State and when specimens are encountered they are nearly always poorly struck. It will take time to find an example with decent or above average striking detail with attractive luster. Higher grade pieces, while elusive, can have attractive, satiny luster. No proofs were produced in the New Orleans mint for the year of 1894-O.
The 1894-O $1 Coin is Worth a Search in High Grades: The 1894-O can be found without a lot of difficulty in pleasing circulated grades of VF to AU, though they won’t fall into your lap-you’ll need to search for a nice coin with strong design details.
UNC Will be Hard to Find with Sharp Details: This date can present a challenge if you’re looking for a sharp example with lively luster and minimal marks. Even in the higher grade range, MS-64 and up, this date must be cherrypicked for sharpness and luster, or you can simply settle for an average coin and be done with it. We suggest you search high and low if need be, for a sharp example will often sell for the same amount as a mediocre example of the date, putting the buyer in the driver’s seat at purchase time.
The obverse text on the Morgan Dollar reads “Liberty; E Pluribus Unum; 1894.” 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.
