Description & Analysis

Among 1880s Morgan dollars, the 1883 Philadelphia issue, with a mintage approaching 13 million pieces, is among the most available. David Bowers writes in A Guide Book of Morgan Silver Dollars: 'Produced in quantity, such pieces were often struck in haste, and some care needs to be exercised to find attractive pieces.'
