This set of five consecutively dated Morgan silver dollars marked the end of the 19th century, an exciting time when riverboats traveled the Mississippi, electricity first lit city streets and Americans left rural areas for growing factory towns. Included are five historic New Orleans Morgan dollars: the 1881, 1882, 1883, 1884 and 1885 coins – all bearing the coveted “O” mint mark.
When Louisiana seceded from the Union in January 1861, it took control of the New Orleans Mint, a branch of the U.S. Mint. Two months later, the Confederacy took control of the facility – making that three different governments within ten weeks! After the war, control of the mint again belonged to the United States, and 90% silver Morgans like these were minted there until 1904.
