Welcome to Coin Community, Rye.
The first thing you have to know is that grade is critical to the value of a coin. Based on the little information provided (and please don't take this as making fun of you), your coin could be worth anything between $20 and $35,000. I mean that seriously - in November 2005, the finest-known example of an 1887 Morgan dollar
sold for $34,500 at auction.
Of course, it takes a magnifying glass to find any mark whatsoever on that coin.

Yours, of course, is probably not in MS68 condition. If, as it seems, your coin has not ever been in circulation, and it's had a typical early life in a bag with 1000 other Morgans (as shipped from the Mint), it is likely in MS63-ish condition and worth about $40-50.
