History, Information, and Value of 1902 Morgan Dollar
Value of 1902-O Morgan Silver Dollar
This date was not considered common until hundreds of thousands of 1902-O Morgan Silver Dollars dollars emerged from a sealed vault in the Philadelphia Mint in 1962. At one time the date was considered a rarity in Mint State, but today, Uncirculated grades are very common. Most coins are flatly struck and some effort is required to find sharply struck specimens. Some Mint State pieces are lustrous and attractive, some are average. No proofs were produced at the New Orleans mint.
Nice Coins With No Demand: Always available in EF and AU though the proliferation of Mint State pieces provides for little demand in circulated grades.
Finding a Well Struck Coin is Worth the Search: Name your grade, MS-60 up to ultra-gem, and you’ll probably be able to locate a specimen with little difficulty. Look for a Mint State-65 gem coin but also look for a crisp strike and good luster-this should keep you busy for a while.
The obverse text on the Morgan Dollar reads “Liberty; E Pluribus Unum; 1902.” 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.
