This fabulous silver coins was struck in New Orleans only from 1879 to 1904.The coin offered here is the 1904-O Morgan Silver Dollar – the last-ever Morgan Silver Dollar from the U.S. Mint in New Orleans. This coin was struck in a long-forgotten U.S. Mint 100 years ago! It can be identified by the small New Orleans “O” mint mark above “DO” in “dollar” on the reverse. The Morgan Silver Dollar is the most-collected of America’s classic coins. It was the favorite silver coin among settlers, outlaws, and prospectors alike in the “Wild West” because of its large size and massive amount of pure silver. In fact, this is the largest U.S. silver coin ever made for circulation: it is almost 1-1/2 inches in diameter and contains over 3/4 ounce of pure silver. The overall silver purity is the standard .900 pure.
