Product description
Product Information
If you wish to start collecting rare coins, then the 1890 Morgan Dollar is the perfect place to begin. Made up of 90 percent silver and 10 percent copper, this Morgan Dollar is 38.1 mm in diameter while weighing 26.73 grams. Tracing back to the Mint Act of 1873 and the Bland-Allison Act of 1878, the 1890 Morgan Dollar has deep historical roots. Named after its designer, George T. Morgan, this silver dollar is part of the Morgan Dollar series which was minted from 1878 to 1904, and again in 1921. Interestingly, as a representation of liberty, this silver dollar depicts an American woman instead of the usual Greek–style figure, presumably Miss Anna W. Williams, a schoolteacher from Philadelphia. With an amazing history surrounding it, owning this Morgan Dollar gives you a chance to revisit the era!

Even if it is for nostalgia, be careful not to pay more than it is worth.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

My purchase was a nostalgia purchase. My folks had a couple silver dollars they were going to pass on to us kids. I wanted to do that for my grandkids. People who buy things, especially coins, need to educate themselves about grading and values before getting carried away. EBay buyers, on average, overpay for coins. The coin market has found new high prices that they can not get in their coin stores.

Good coin to get your Morgan collection started !

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

Relatively new to collecting Morgans. Like the Carson City mintage, and this was one of my first ones. There seem to be plenty of the 1890 Carson City available, so one can look at quite a few. Very nice coin, excellent condition. Had a relative who is more of the coin collector check this one out, and he was very impressed (he knows the grading better than I do). Glad to have this in my collection.

Morgan Dollars minted In Carson City, Neveda...beautiful rare and valuable

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I've been collecting Morgan Silver Dollars forever...it is rather frustrating as I am ever so close to finally completing this part of my coin collection...the particular 1890 Morgan Silver dollar I bought was minted in Carson City...I mostly need issues from that mint to complete my collection and this was no exception...Realistically, I probably won't actually complete this collection, but I'll keep pecking away at it as funds become available for the rare and valuable Morgan Silver Dollars that I still need...This issue was a little more common than many of the Carson City minted Silver dollars so it did fit the budget...I try to buy one every month or so and if I could afford to buy them every month and I actually bought all that I lack...It would still be over two years to have one of each coin minted and have every date and mint mark......

Buy Morgan silver dollars! they're not making them any more....

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

This coin is a valuable asset in progressing with my hobby of collecting Morgan Dollars. I don't have the time nor the resources to go to trade shows so Ebay brings the trade show to my computer. Each coin acquired is a step closer to a life long goal of owning the complete colection.

Great Coin for My Collection

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

Bought the 1890 P Morgan to add to my collection.

The coin had so Obverse bag type marks, but seemed to be to offer it character.

This coin, for the money was by far a better match for my collection.
