Pick up any Morgan Dollar and examine it closely at the base of the wreath surrounding the bald eagle and you’ll see something seemingly innocuous, but actually hugely important.
You are looking for a letter – an “S”, “CC”, “O” or “D”.
The letter identifies the Mint where the coin was struck – San Francisco, Carson City, New Orleans and Denver, respectively. If there is no “Mint Mark”, that means the coin was struck at Philadelphia.
It’s this secret mark that the experts look out for and now you can too. That’s because the Mint Mark is the key to the coin’s rarity. Mintages vary by mint, by year – and with that so does the value of the coin.
For example, if you’re lucky enough to own an 1893 Morgan Dollar with an “S” Mint Mark in immaculate condition, you may have a coin worth in the region of $500,000.
Now you can own all FIVE Mint Marks in one complete set. A set that includes Carson City – the scarcest and most valuable of all the Mint Marks.
To the naked eye, you’ll own a set of five identical Morgan Dollars but you’ll know the difference. The difference that makes you someone with a serious knowledge of American coins and not just a casual collector.
Why you should own the Complete Morgan Dollar Set:
- All 5 Mint Marks in one complete set, including the rarest and hardest to find – Carson City
- Issued between 1878 and 1921 – some of your coins will likely be over 100 years old
- The cornerstone of the American monetary system and the coin that the Wild West was built upon
- From the period of Billy the Kid, Jesse James and Doc Holliday – old America and the frontier
- Millions melted down throughout its existence, leaving less than 1 in 5 Morgan Dollars struck surviving today
- The 5 coins are individually held in tamper proof capsules in a luxurious presentation case, which you will receive free of charge.
