Customer Reviews

Silver dollar collectors know that 1878 was special, because that's when 90% silver Morgans were first struck. That year, the U.S. Mint in Philadelphia actually created three different tail feather designs, and today these coins are highly sought after by collectors. Now's your chance to own one of these elusive examples.

After striking the original 8 Tail Feathers reverse (which was deemed anatomically incorrect) for only a few weeks, new reverse dies were created for the 7 Tail Feathers Morgan – and some 8 Feather coins were overstruck with a 7 Feather die, creating the famous "7 over 8" variety!

Offered here is the famed "7 over 8" Tail Feather variety. Each piece has been graded Very Choice Uncirculated, MS-64 by our experts and is certified by PCGS. They display attractive original mint luster and sharp strikes – allowing you to fully enjoy all of the fine details of these first-year varieties. Don't miss your opportunity to add this historic "7 over 8" first-year variety to your collection.
