Hi all,

It's been a couple of years since I posted on this site, but just getting back into the hobby

Browsing eBay and I came across this 1878 o Morgan dollar, to my knowledge there were no Morgan dollars made in New Orleans in 1878

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/25381307...l_noapp=true


Sellers description The historic New Orleans Mint first struck Morgan silver dollars over 130 years ago in 1878. Less than 3 million "O" mint mark Morgans were produced in that initial year.

Am I correct or am I losing the plot?

The total mintage for 1878-O Morgan dollars was less than 3 million, way less I suppose and all were produced in ch ina.

It's a fake coin, no real 1878-O morgans ever existed.

According to the Encyclopedia and Catalog of Morgan and Peace dollars 1879 was the first New Orleans minted Morgan dollar.
