I was inspired when I was on Twitter yesterday. Two beautiful photos of 1881-S Morgan dollars were posted. As a longtime Morgan dollar fan, I know this particular coin is one of the most attractive in the set. Strike is good, eye appeal is usually high. Many are available in Mint State. It's not an expensive rarity. It's an old fashioned silver dollar, over 130 years old.
This coin would be a nice Christmas gift for a collector or a non-collector. Anyone interested in coins appreciates a lovely Morgan dollar. Anyone not interested in coins may be attracted by its weight, its Liberty head design, and the fact that this legal tender coin is 90% silver. History buffs may enjoy a silver dollar, and it has that San Francisco mint mark. The S MInt continues to this day, although we will never see circulating silver dollars again!
A 1881-S silver dollar makes a memorable Christmas gift.
