The Morgan Dollar series was struck from 1878-1904 and then again in 1921. The coins were struck on 90% silver planchets, each containing .7734 oz. of silver bullion. This issue was struck at the Nation's first mint, the Philadelphia branch of the U.S. Mint. The grade of Mint State 65 is a solid grade for a collectible coin such as this.
The designer of the series was an English engraver working for the U. S. Mint named George Morgan. He served as Chief Engraver of the Mint from 1917 until 1925 when he died. The obverse features the portrait of Liberty.
The reverse of the coin features a heraldic bald eagle encircled by a laurel wreath. Above the eagle the motto "In God We Trust" appears in Gothic script.
