Description & Analysis

The New Orleans Mint struck almost 12.3 million Morgan dollars in 1899. For a while, this date was considered quite rare, but when the Treasury began releasing dollars, many original bags of 1899-O Morgans were among them, which explains how common they are now, especially in high grade.
