1889 Philadelphia Morgan Silver Dollar Brilliant Uncirculated. Just 2% of this historic issue may survive in this original mint-state quality today. That's an unusually low percentage. In fact, no other U.S. Morgan silver dollar was so affected by government melts during the world wars. Our Brilliant Uncirculated 90% silver specimens boast the same luster as when newly released in 1889 by the principal (no-mintmark) Philadelphia Mint. Now over 130 years old, these coins get harder to find each year.
1890 Philadelphia Morgan Silver Dollar Brilliant Uncirculated. This issue is one of the only mint-state Morgan dollars of the early 1890s that's so affordable today. As little as 2% of the original 1890 Philadelphia output survives in mint-state grades. By comparison, some earlier issues in the series that cost the same can be up to ten times as plentiful in mint-state condition. Our Brilliant Uncirculated quality has nice original luster and no sign of wear. Bag marks may be present as is normal.
