Description & Analysis

In 1882, the New Orleans Mint struck just over six million Morgan dollars. At the time, all dies were made at the Philadelphia Mint, where the mint marks were also placed on the dies. This created the opportunity for varieties to occur, and occur they did this year. It seems that three dies originally prepared with the "S" mint mark of San Francisco has the "O" mint mark for New Orleans placed on top of the "S." This created three very popular varieties that are highly sought after today!

Many examples of this date were found in the treasury releases of the mid 20th century. However, few uncirculated examples of the O over S varieties have been found. In fact, these varieties are often found on lower-grade coins, which points to the conclusion that most of the O/S coins were released into circulation soon after striking.

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
