Description & Analysis

Unlike so many other Morgan silver dollars, most of the 1880-O dollars coined were actually released into circulation. A few were represented in the Treasury hoard released in the early 1960s, and a few other small quantities were released in earlier years, but those that have come into the marketplace have quickly been absorbed. Today, Choice or Gem quality 1880-O Morgan dollars are virtually non-existent.
