Description:
Condition Census 1878 7/8 TF Strong Silver Dollar
1878 7/8TF $1 Strong MS 66 PCGS. The extreme pressure that the Bland-Allison Act placed upon the Mint is evident in the haste with which the first Morgan dollars dies were prepared. While the details of Morgan's design were being finalized, several dies were overpunched with the new 7 tail feathers hub. The coins that the Philadelphia Mint struck from these dies have been among the most widely sought examples in this popular series. What's more, this is a conditionally challenging variety that is scarce at the MS 65 level and all but unknown finer. This delicately patinated, lilac-gray specimen exhibits crisp striking definition and fulsome mint frost. Both sides are free of even the most trivial abrasion and there are pleasing gold colored accents about the rims. An important Condition Census example, this coin shares the MS 66 level with only 3 other examples between both major grading services and is bettered by none(2/00). (NGC ID# 2TXZ, PCGS# 7078)
