Get three historic issues from the first year of the classic Morgan dollar series! After briefly debuting at the Philadelphia Mint in 1878 with an 8 tail feather eagle image deemed anatomically incorrect, the Second Reverse featuring 7 tail feathers was issued. This was followed by the Third Reverse – also with 7 tail feathers and featuring a more rounded eagle breast and slanted top arrow in the eagle’s talons – which was used throughout the rest of the series.
With this historic set, you’ll get the 7 tail feather Second Reverse and Third Reverse 1878 issues from the Philadelphia Mint, of which the official Red Book guide to Morgan dollars states: “Although not all Morgan collectors are aware of the varieties, both are eminently worth owning.” You’ll also get the sought-after 1878-S Morgan with 7 tail feathers from the San Francisco Mint – first of the popular early San Francisco Morgan dollars. Add these 90% silver first-year coins to your collection in attractive Very Fine condition.
