Morgan Dollars 1878-1890 - Dansco Coin Albums

  • $48.00

Dansco Coin Albums have been a longtime companion for both expert numismatists and beginning coin collectors. The Morgan Dollars 1878-1890 Dansco Album comes in a 5/8" binder and holds up to 48 coins. The album has 4 Dansco pages (series: 7178-1 to 7178-4), each one holding and displaying all Morgan dollars minted from 1878-1890. Englishman George T. Morgan, whose initial "M" appears on the obverse, was in charge of the design for the new 1878 dollar coin. The 1889-CC dollar coins are of particular interest as 350,000 of these are recorded to be minted, but 325, 000 were melted the same year. Dollar coins from that year and CC mintmark range from $1,750 to $531,000. Take a look again at this slot at your album. Luck might be with you! Morgan dollars minted from 1878-1890 measure 38.1 mm. They are made of 90% silver and 10% copper, and each weighs 26.73 grams. Morgan dollars were coined at the Philadelphia, New Orleans, Carson City and San Francisco Mints. Dansco Coin Albums have their pages attached with metal screws, making it easy to add and replace.
