Following the death of financier LaVere Redfield, some 400,000 silver dollars were discovered in the multi-millionaires basement. These became known as the Redfield Hoard and have attracted considerable interest from Morgan Dollar enthusiasts. Here, we are pleased to offer a Redfield Morgan in its original holder with certification from the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation. Today, you have the opportunity to buy certified Redfield 1888-S Morgan Silver Dollar Coins online from Provident Metals.
When you purchase 1888-S Morgan Dollar Coins, you will receive a genuine silver piece that is considered legal tender by the United States. Each coin will arrive in a special holder with a red backdrop to confirm they came from the Redfield Hoard. NGC graded the coins and applied a seal across the holder containing the official certification information.
Lady Liberty is found on the obverse of these 1888-S Morgan Silver Dollars. In this iconic design, we see her facing left and wearing both a crown of wheat and a Phrygian cap. The effigy is credited to George T. Morgan, with Anna Williams serving as a model for the design. Inscriptions on the obverse read 1888, E PLURIBUS UNUM.
A heraldic eagle motif features on the reverse of these Morgan Silver Dollar Coins. If you look closely, you will see arrows and an olive branch in the birds talons. Historically, these have been symbols of Americas wars and the peace she strives for. You will see inscriptions also reading UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, IN GOD WE TRUST, ONE DOLLAR.
The Redfield Hoard was discovered by the heirs of LaVere Redfield at his home near Reno, Nevada. Redfield lived a colorful life that included enormous financial success as well as a stint in prison for tax evasion. Ultimately, he died of a heart attack in 1974 with a fortune estimated at nearly $50 million (despite a historic burglary in his home in 1952 that was believed to be the largest in US history at the time). The Redfield Hoard consisted mainly of Morgan and Peace dollars, which were auctioned off in 1976 for $7.3 million. Those in the best condition were then placed in special holders by Paramount International Coin Corp.
