After the original eight tail feather eagle Morgan dollar type embarrassed the Mint Director, he ordered a new type with seven tail feathers later in 1878. It became the standard for the series. Curiously, the young designer George T. Morgan had originally submitted a seven tail feather design after carefully studying the stuffed eagle at the Philadelphia Mint. But the Mint Director had suggested that he add another tail feather to fill the design out! We offer the 1878 Philadelphia 7-TF type in Brilliant Uncirculated quality.
