Description & Analysis

There is nothing special about the numerous Brilliant Uncirculated 1888-O Morgan Dollars that abound on today's market. More often than not, these coins are softly impressed, lackluster, and/or heavily abraded. Such characteristics provide limited eye appeal, and it is easy for discerning specialists to lose heart when searching for the 1888-O Silver Dollar for their collections.
