Catalog Notes for Morgan Dollar $1 MS Pre-1921 [Type]: Morgan dollars were struck from 1878 through 1904 and then, following a hiatus of 17 years, struck once more in 1921. All told, the first generation of Morgan dollars — those made from 1878 through 1904 — are categorically common as a group, though several dates are downright rare even in well-circulated grades. Individuals who buy Morgan dollars as a type will tend to focus on purchasing more common dates, which are mostly dominated by representatives from the Philadelphia, San Francisco, and New Orleans Mints. Examples from Carson City are much scarcer as a group and, grade-for-grade, are considerably more expensive than most of the other, non-CC issues. PLs and DMPLs are highly popular and many are reasonably common.

About CDN Prices:
CPG® prices represent retail levels. Collectors should refer to CPG values as a starting place for their negotiations, or auction bid reference.
Greysheet/Greensheet prices are wholesale market levels for collectible coins/paper money intended to indicate what a dealer, or wholesale, buyer would pay for the described item in the specified grade. Greysheet/Greensheet represent "sight-seen" values based on a buyer's in-hand review. The actual value can be more or less than this depending on factors including eye appeal and market timing.
Bluesheet (NGC & PCGS) prices represent the highest sight-unseen offers to buy on dealer networks like CDN Exchange. In many cases, there are no active sight-unseen buy offers, so CDN looks to the recent lowest market values for such an item. For this reason, Bluesheet values typically represent the floor of the market for the specified item. CDN only tracks Bluesheet on certain items.
CAC prices are for U.S. coins that meet the standards of the Certified Acceptance Corporation. You can learn more about CAC on their web site.
