1901-O Morgan Dollar

Have a Morgan silver dollar and want to know its value?

Common junk silver from 1901. Is that even possible? Yes it is. Not to mention it is also from the New Orleans mint. Even with all that in low grade you will only get melt value.




This coin was in bad shape the tarnish turned it greyish and kind of slick. Maybe it was in a fire but I think bad holder may have ruined this coin. The O above DO in DOLLAR reminds you about its New Orleans birth and in dollar coins that means little. New Orleans minted millions of silver and gold coins each year so they are rarely worth anything more than the Philadelphia mint, in some cases Phillies are worth much more.

Here's the stat for this coin...
Type/Country: 1 Dollar / United States
Year: 1901-O
Mintage: 13,320,000
Metal: 90% silver, 10% copper
Value: $20.00 in F-12

I love the lower grade coins like this because you can hold them w/out worrying about damaging them any. You are handling a piece of history :)
Also, your Am Silver Eagle is beautiful!

True it reminds of the old west when people would carry and buy stuff with silver dollars.

That said I do like blast white silver and I have better examples that I have to show off one day.
