In 1879, the Mint made Morgan Silver Dollars with two different reverses. The first, called 'Reverse of 1878 or 'Second Reverse' was a holdover from the previous year and shows a flat-breasted eagle and a flat feather on the top fletch of the arrows. The second, call 'Reverse of 1879' or 'Third Reverse' has an eagle with a nice, rounded breast. The 1879 Morgan Silver Dollar was produced in four mints: Carson City, New Orleans, Philadelphia, and San Francisco. The most valuable 1879 Morgan Silver Dollar carries the 'CC' mintmark used by the Carson City Mint. It always carries a premium value because of very low production, making it the rarest 1879 Morgan Dollar. 1879 Morgan Silver Dollar ANACS MS63 Beautiful Toned.
