One of the last Morgan dollar issues of the Old South, this guaranteed 1902 mint-state New Orleans legend was released the same year that American author John Steinbeck was born and the Carnegie Institution was founded.
When the New Orleans Mint closed its doors in 1909, bags of Morgan dollars were stored away in Treasury vaults. By the 1960s, the 1902-O issue was in short supply in the Morgan silver dollar series — that is, until the contents of the Treasury vaults were sold. Among the bags of silver dollars released were the once coveted 1902-O issues, which now makes them an affordable option for collectors in original mint-state. Our hand-selected Brilliant Uncirculated quality retains nice original luster and shows no trace of wear. Please note that bag marks may be present, as is normal.
