Answer There were 6 variations of a silver dollar minted in 1879. Look on the back of the coin to see if there's a small mint mark letter above the DO in DOLLAR. It may be blank or there may be a CC, O, or S.

Numismedia lists the following approximate retail values as of 08/2011:

No mint mark (Philadelphia):

Very worn condition - $36

Moderately worn - $38

Slightly worn - $38

Almost no wear - $40

Uncirculated - $50 to $35,750 depending on quality

"CC" mint mark (Carson City):

Very worn - $121

Moderately worn - $192

Slightly worn - $406

Almost no wear - $1,770

Uncirculated - $3,830 to $91,000

"CC" mint mark with doubling:

Very worn - $121

Moderately worn - $186

Slightly worn - $318

Almost no wear - $1,664

Uncirculated - $3,630 to $74,380

"O" mint mark (New Orleans):

Very worn - $33

Moderately worn - $35

Slightly worn - $36

Almost no wear - $40

Uncirculated - $70 to $17,550

"S" mint mark (San Francisco):

(slanted top arrow feather, convex breast on the reverse)

Very worn - $37

Moderately worn - $39

Slightly worn - $39

Almost no wear - $42

Uncirculated - $40 to $4,340

"S" mint mark:

(parallel top arrow feather, concave breast on the reverse)

Very worn - $33

Moderately worn - $35

Slightly worn - $36

Almost no wear - $50

Uncirculated - $115 to $47,190

DISCLAIMER: The retail values quoted are the best available as of the date shown, but may vary significantly due to changes in the precious metals market. Also the wholesale (buying) price of a coin will be less than the selling (retail) price. A reputable coin dealer will be able to give a more accurate valuation based on inspection of the coin.

FAQ's about Morgan dollarsE Pluribus Unum

The motto E Pluribus Unum (Latin for "Out of Many, One") is on ALL $1 coins minted since 1878 so that's not specific enough to ID any one coin.

Silver Eagles

Silver eagles are bullion coins minted since 1986 for sale to collectors but not for spending. Morgan dollars were made for use in ordinary circulation just like dimes and quarters.
