Here’s one of the more desirable Morgans in the series – the first-year “7 Tail Feathers!” For silver dollar collectors, 1878 was special, because the first 90% silver Morgan dollars were minted and the Philadelphia Mint struck several different Morgan Tail Feather reverse designs. Here for your collection are outstanding examples of the first-year 7 Tail Feathers variety.
After striking the original first 8 Tail Feathers reverse for a few weeks, new official reverse dies were created for the 7 Tail Feathers Morgan and put into use in April. Known as the 2nd reverse, the design shows 7 tail feathers beneath the arrow, the top arrow feather is parallel (PAF) and the eagle has a flat breast. Now, you can make this spectacular variety your own! Each Morgan dollar has been graded by our experts and certified by NGC. Over 135 years old, these are still lustrous and original – don’t wait to get yours!
