There are many common dates available in mint state condition for well under a hundred dollars.The large diameter (38.1 millimeters, 1.5 inches) and slightly over three quarters of an ounce of pure silver makes it appealing to collectors from novice to expert. Grading Morgan dollars can be a challenge to most collectors and coin enthusiasts. Many slight design changes have occurred over the years as well as over 2000 different die varieties exist. Morgan dollars have large devises (focal design) and large fields (area around design) so wear is easily detectable.
