Struck only by the principal Philadelphia Mint, this historic first Morgan dollar had an abbreviated mintage of just 750,000. Minting was stopped after an ornithologist protested that eagles always have an odd number of feathers. Later Morgan dollars were struck with seven-tailfeather eagles. Our Very Fine quality clearly displays detailing.
