silver dollars minted from 1878 to 1921 are known as "Liberty
Head" dollars or "Morgan" dollars after their designer, George
T. Morgan. The coins have a rich history, having been in
widespread use during the "wild west" days of the frontier and
were minted from the large discoveries of American silver in the
late 19th century.

coins come with written guarantees of a coin's authenticity and
condition. Three professional graders must all agree on a coin's
grade, and then their grade must be approved by a "finalizer."
Afterwards, the coin is sealed in a hard plastic case with a
unique 8-digit number and other identifying information.
Morgan silver dollars are among the more popular certified coins
