History, Information, and Value of 1900 Morgan Dollar
Value of 1900 Morgan Silver Dollar
The 1900 Morgan Silver Dollars introduced a new reverse hub to replace the old style. On the new hub, the junction of the wing and neck forms a wider U and the stars are larger. The eagle’s breast feathers are somewhat indistinct compared to the old style. Morgan dollars of this date range in strike quality from those with poor definition to well-struck pieces. Sharp pieces exist but take some time to find. Luster varies greatly as well, from dull and unattractive to frosty and lustrous. Proofs usually have a decent strike with a contrast that varies from average to cameo. Delivered in four quarterly batches beginning in March of the year as typical for Proof issues of the era. Generally available to all who desire an example, this date is found with some frequency with engaging cameo contrast. Look for one of these with solid eye appeal for your collection, and “pass” on anything else.
Common Philadlephia Mint One Dollar Morgan Year to Find: Found with some frequency in EF or AU though those grades are typically ignored by today’s collectors unless a circulated set of Morgans is being assembled.
Pick Any Grade You Would Like: The date is readily available in Mint State at just about any grade desired. We like the MS-65 grade for this affordable date, but be certain to shop around for a sharply struck and lustrous example, an activity that might keep you busy for a short period.
The obverse text on the Morgan Dollar reads “Liberty; E Pluribus Unum; 1900.” 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.
