$1 1881-S Silver Morgan Dollar, NGC MS64 #1763404-096

<p> <u><em><strong>$1 1881-S Silver Morgan Dollar, NGC MS64 #1763404-096.</strong></em></u> Morgan Silver Dollars were named for their designer, George T. Morgan, who was the U.S. Mint's Assistant Engraver at the time. Morgan Dollars were minted intermittently between 1878, following the Brand-Allison Act on February 28, until 1921 at which time the Peace Dollar design was introduced. Production of the Morgan Dollars began on March 11, 1878 at the Philadelphia Mint. To meet the monthly quota necessary to fulfill the government's under the Brand-Allison Act, it was decided to involve the Western mints in production of the Morgan dollars. All of the dies were to be made in Philadelphia as it was believed the Branch mints did not own the proper equipment to prepare the coin dies. Utilization of the Western Mints would be further delayed due to an imperfection found by Mint Director Henry Richard Linderman in the dies made at the Philadelphia Mint, which were adjusted, to reduce the relief and to make the reverse eagle's tail feathers to number seven instead of eight. The reduction of the design's relief lengthened the life of the dies and the seven tail feather design kept in accordance with previous American coins which all had an odd number of bald eagle tail feathers. After adjustments were made, the San Francisco and Carson City Mints finally received their dies in April and commenced production at that time. The mint in New Orleans began striking Morgan Silver Dollars in 1879 and Denver mint struck only the last of the series, 1921. Through the course of the series, various die inconsistencies have been discovered and catalogued by Leroy Van Allen and George Mallis. VAM numbers, as they are called by enthusiasts, are listed by each year and are in demand by many avid Morgan Dollar collectors. Trends is $80 and the Collector's Universe list is $86.</p>
