Overview & Details

1878 Uncirculated Morgan Silver Dollar "Flat/Round Breasted Eagle" 2pk
Own a historic anomaly. These 90% silver dollars reflect the progress in the late 1800s. In 1878, the Philadelphia Mint was using one set of dies and design, but the San Francisco design was a bit different. Here's your chance to own both coins as well as share a very interesting story.

Flat breasted vs round breasted eagle and mints
  • In 1878, the Morgan silver dollar design was first minted at Philadelphia. After going through several major design changes, the Mint settled on a design in which the eagle had a rounded breast, and the top feather on the arrow is slanted. This basic design was used from 1878 to 1904.
  • At the San Francisco Mint, working dies were shipped from Philadelphia, but things moved a bit slower in those days. While the Mint in Philadelphia minted 1878 Morgan dollars with the rounded breast, the San Francisco Mint stayed with the flat breasted eagle design throughout 1878 and into 1879.
  • In 1879, the San Francisco Mint converted to using new dies with the rounded breast eagle just as the Philadelphia Mint had done in late 1878.
