Description & Analysis

The San Francisco Mint struck over 8 million Morgan dollars in 1890. Most were well-made and of high quality. This issue is quite readily available through choice and is slightly more common than the Philadelphia issue of this date in gem. In MS66 and above, the Philadelphia issue is much harder to find.
