Finest Known: MS67+ (NGC) MS68 (PCGS)

Auction Record: $34,500 (MS67)

9,774,000 1878-S Morgan dollars were struck. Many did not circulate until the 20th century. An estimated 600,000 did not emerge from government vaults until the great 1962–1964 disbursements.

This has resulted in circulated examples of 1878-S Morgans tending to be less worn than truly common date mintages.
