The obverse of the 1879 Morgan Silver Dollar Coin features the elegant Lady Liberty, masterfully designed by George T. Morgan. She graces the coin in left-profile relief, adorned with a Phrygian cap, a coronet crown, and a laurel wreath, exuding a sense of grace and freedom.


The reverse design of the 1879-CC Morgan Dollar Coin showcases the majestic heraldic eagle, another masterpiece by George Morgan. The front-facing bald eagle clutches the arrows of war and the olive branch of peace in its talons. Beneath the wreath on this side, you’ll find the distinctive “Capped Die” flaw represented by the CC mint mark, making each coin truly one of a kind.


A Capped Die coin is a true gem for collectors and history enthusiasts. When examining the reverse side of the coin above the CC mint mark, you’ll notice a fascinating feature that appears like two “caps” above it. This intriguing effect emerged due to the mint’s use of a worn, rusty die during production. The original mint mark had to be re-punched to rectify the crust accumulation, creating this remarkable visual characteristic.
