Book Overview
In the sixth edition of A Guide Book of Morgan Silver Dollars, Q. David Bowers offers an engaging portrait of the country's most popular classic coin. You'll learn what to look for when you buy, how to grade your coins, how to cherrypick varieties, and ways to become a smarter collector.

The sixth edition includes a history of the silver dollar dating back to the 1790s, and chapters on the Morgan dollar's design, its minting process, the five mints that struck the coin from 1878 to 1921, and Treasury hoards and other accumulations.
