About 1878 8TF $1 MS Morgan Dollars

The 1878 8TF dollar is a relatively scarce first issue of the long-running Morgan series, considered by many as the most popular of all United States coins. Hard to find in all grades, the 1878 8TF is particularly challenging in the Gem MS range and up, with PLs and DMPLs even harder though obtainable for a cost. The reasons behind the relative short issuance of the eight tail feather variety has decidedly ornithological origins: American bald eagles have only seven tailfeathers – as correctly seen on all Morgan dollars minted after 1878.

About CDN Prices

All CDN prices are based on proprietary market knowledge and technology developed by CDN Publishing, LLC.

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.

Price movement is indicated for price changes in the last 30 days.

The values listed are only indications. CDN Publishing, LLC does not buy or sell collectibles.
