Available in BU (Brilliant Uncirculated) condition, the Pre-21 $1 Morgan Silver Dollar is categorized as having no wear at all.

The Morgan design was originally minted in the U.S. from 1878, until 1904, then once more in 1921, and replaced the Seated Liberty design. Silver dollar currency experienced a brief hiatus from 1873 to 1878, when the resumption of the coin was authorized by the Act of 1878, known as the Bland-Allision Act.

An English-man, George T. Morgan, designed the coin to resemble an American woman, rather than the typical Greco-Roman depictions of previously minted coins. In 1921 over 80 million Morgan Silver Dollars were minted after a 17 year hiatus in which the Pittman Act of authorized the U.S. to melt up to 350 million Silver Dollars, of which the U.S. melted over 270 million.


On the Obverse of the coin, Lady Liberty is shown in profile facing left and wears a liberty cap with "Liberty" inscribed on the rim, and shows two cotton blossom, and two heads of wheat adorning the side of the cap. "E Pluribus Unim" appears above Liberties image, and 13 stars encircle the lower half with the date shown in the center of the configuration. 


Also designed by George Morgan, the eagle with outstretched wings is similar to the earlier depictions of the majestic animal which appeared on the first coins of the, then, young nation. An olive branch, and bundle of arrows are seen clutched in its talons, and a wreath is shown surrounding the lower have of the eagles image. "United States of America" is shown above the eagle and shows the motto "In Gold We Trust" just above its head. Below the eagles image is the denomination of the coin.
